For those thinking about a weekend escape to a neighbouring Atlantic province – or travelling to see family and friends – that dream is on hold. The Atlantic Bubble was set to re-open next week – but – the four Premiers have decided to delay the re-opening until at least May 03rd.

The decision is based on concerns about the COVID variants which are highly contagious and advice from the four Chief Medical Officers of Health.

Two variants have been identified in New Brunswick – the U-K variant is at the centre of an ongoing outbreak in the Edmundston area while two cases of the South African variant have been identified here in the Saint John region.
