  • The Atlantic Canada Bubble returns for Atlantic residents who have received at least one vaccine dose (e.g. no testing, no self-isolation); shortened isolation and testing for unvaccinated travelers.  
  • Domestic travel outside Atlantic Canada is permitted with conditions. 

Step 3, projected for July 18, 2021: 

  • Non-medical mask requirements will ease. 

Step 4, projected for August 8, 2021: 
Provided that 50% of eligible Islanders have received their second of two doses of vaccine:

  • Domestic travel outside Atlantic Canada is permitted with conditions. 

Step 5, projected for September 12, 2021:  
Provided that 80% of eligible Islanders have received their second of two doses of vaccine:  

  • All COVID restrictions eased.
  • No restrictions on business and organizations.
  • Domestic travel within Canada with no pre-travel approval required.
