COVID-19 INFO:
Travel advisory: COVID-19 border measures for Campobello Islan

News release

June 12, 2020 Campobello Island, New Bruswick

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Canada, while facilitating trade and essential travel. Given this, the CBSA is reminding New Brunswickers that travelling to and from Campobello Island through the United States (U.S.) is international travel and constitutes exiting Canada. To gain re-entry into Canada, travellers must report to a CBSA port of entry.

The temporary restriction on all discretionary travel at the Canada-U.S. border has been extended until June 21, 2020. All travel of an optional or discretionary nature, such as tourism and recreation, is covered by these measures.

While Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and Registered Indians under the Indian Act continue to enter Canada by right, they remain subject to COVID-19 entry screening measures and must comply with the mandatory 14-day requirement to quarantine or isolate if not exempt.

Exemptions to quarantine and isolation requirements are currently in place to ensure that critical infrastructure, essential services and economic supply chains continue between Canada and the U.S. Exemptions are also in place for residents of Campobello Island who are asymptomatic and must cross the border on a day-to-day basis for work, or to obtain essential goods and services. These exemptions do not apply to residents of mainland New Brunswick who wish to visit Campobello Island.

Travellers are required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering upon entry to Canada and while in transit to isolation or quarantine, unless the mask or face covering needs to be removed for security or safety reasons. Travellers presenting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be referred to a Public Health Agency of Canada staff member for further assessment.

A Winter Day Spent On Campobello

A bright winter day is a great time to see and experience Campobello Island. The air is clear and like always fresh, maybe even a bit more fresh than in summer, at least it is a bit colder.

You can observe the fleet of fishing boats as they run out to catch scallops or when they come back home with a load of lobsters. Quite a show really!

Or you can undertake a nice walk along a lonely beach, returning through the troll-forest of Campobello Provincial Park.

Today, we took a walk out to Head Harbour Lightstation. What a view to see the beautiful buildings perched high on the rocks surrounded by snow.

When Campobello Was A Famous Tourist Resort

“Newport and Bar Harbour were attracting the wealthy who sought relief from the city’s oppressive heat and humidity and had both the time and resources to enjoy these new summer colonies. They were designed as exclusive havens for members of the upper classes and their social peers. Campobello met these criteria, but it was geographically more remote than the other resorts, and it was designed to be simpler and less formal. More emphasis was placed on the rural and rustic qualities of the island and less on elaborate homes and social pomp.These features distinguished Campobello from other retreats”.

And that is as valid today as it was back in the heydays of the upper crust spending extended periods of summer on the island.
