The Higgs government has tweaked the isolation requirements for leisure and business travellers returning to the province as well as those moving to New Brunswick.

The government now says there may be some cases that would qualify to stay in a “stand-alone residence” instead of a designated hotel. This will be determined on a case by case basis – and – if granted will be subject to “enhanced compliance checks” during the quarantine period. Anyone who fails to follow the guidelines will be sent to a designated isolation hotel at their expense and will also face fines.

The changes come just a week after the new restrictions were introduced.

You still have to register with the province prior to your trip. Travellers with questions about whether they qualify for an alternative isolation option can email – travellers will be contacted in order of planned arrival.
