New Brunswick tightens border travel restrictions

HOULTON, Maine – The New Brunswick government tightened border restrictions again last week, so that even family members of Canadian citizens can no longer enter the province through Maine border crossings.

The new restrictions, imposed on January 8 and updated most recently on February 27, came as the entire province entered an “orange” stage of public health alert, the next highest level in a four-stage system, due to to an increase in COVID-19 cases and concerns about the potential for more infectious variants of COVID-19 in the country. The measure affects not only US citizens, but also Canadians living in other parts of Canada who wish to enter New Brunswick.

Until January, family members and people in romantic relationships could cross the border into Canada, provided they went through a 14-day quarantine period upon entry.
