All travellers entering New Brunswick, including truck drivers who regularly cross borders, must register their travel online or by calling 1-833-948-2800.
“Until the majority of us have been vaccinated, unnecessary travel is simply too risky,” said Dr. Jennifer Russell, chief medical officer of health. “If you do not have to travel, you should stay home. If you decide to take this risk against public health guidance and advice, we need to be sure that you are not putting the health of other New Brunswickers in jeopardy.”
Beginning Saturday, April 24 at 11:59 p.m., rotational workers will be required to self-isolate for 14 days, separate from others, upon returning to New Brunswick, regardless of their vaccination status. If they choose to isolate at home with other people, everyone in the household must also isolate for 14 days.
Also effective on Saturday, April 24 at 11:59 p.m., truck drivers who regularly cross borders and all other regular cross-border commuters will be required to follow modified self-isolation guidelines for 14 days upon arrival in New Brunswick.
