On June 16, 2021, New Brunswick announced the province’s entrance to phase 2 on the path toward the Green level of the COVID-19 recovery plan two weeks ahead of the original target date. According to the new regulations, no isolation or testing will be required for those travelling to New Brunswick from the Atlantic provinces, including Nova Scotia, or for Canadian residents with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Unvaccinated Canadians from outside the Atlantic provinces will be permitted to enter the province but will be required to isolate and take a COVID-19 test. In addition, travel registration will continue to be required for all travellers entering the province from outside the Atlantic provinces. All other restrictions including the requirement for travel registration and the use of masks will remain in place. To note, New Brunswick entered phase 1 on June 15, 2021.
