Newfoundland and Labrador to end participation in Atlantic Bubble

September 28, 2021

In response to growing COVID-19 case numbers in the Atlantic Region, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador announced that effective Thursday, September 30, 2021, the province will suspend its participation in the Atlantic Bubble. As a result, residents of the other Atlantic Provinces will have to follow the same rules as other Canadians when entering the province. 

There is a minor exception to this rule for residents along the Quebec / Labrador border. These residents can continue to access services on either side of the border, so long as they have not left the region during the past fourteen days. Note: These rule changes do not impact commercial truck traffic.

In addition, any traveller who is partially vaccinated (only one dose) will now have to meet the same requirements as those who are unvaccinated. These travellers will be required to isolate for two weeks, but can avail themselves of a COVID-19 test on days seven through nine of their isolation period. Once they receive a negative test, they no longer need to isolate.
