New Brunswick is moving to Phase 2 of the province’s reopening plan as 75.4 per cent of eligible New Brunswickers have been vaccinated with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 20.2 per cent of people 65 and older have received both doses.
Canadian residents with at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine travelling to New Brunswick need not isolate for 14 days. Those who are not vaccinated will have to isolate and produce a negative test before being released from quarantine.
Though the same rule applies to travellers from Maine and other international jurisdictions, they will not be able to visit New Brunswick as the Canadian border remains closed due to Federal restrictions for international travellers.
