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.

YEAH…FOGFEST GO! The UMM UKULELE CLUB

As it should be, the 3. day of the Campobello Fogfest started with thick fog. Fortunately, it disappeared during the morning hours, though the sun did not break through the clouds for long periods, keeping the temps at around 70F.1-DSC_0592
We have been looking forward to tonight’s performance of the University of Maine in Machias Ukulele Club at Jocie’s Porch.
Expecting a high turn-out we went down to Jocie’s half an hour before start, but were flustered to see that most of the chairs were already occupied.

When the Ukulele group (there was a lot of other instruments) were all lined up and started playing, the audience started vibrating. Soon, Jocie’s Porch was swinging and rocking and everybody was like being electrified.

Every song they played went right into people’s feet. If there would have been enough floor space, people would have started dancing.

2 hours and everybody wanted MORE, MORE, but after several more pieces the audience got off their seats for a standing applause.

Campobello went crazy for these folks from Maine. Thank you, thank you and come again next year, please.

The 4th Annual Campobello Fogfest

People do a double-take when we mention FOGFEST. What is that? Well, we can’t do away with the fog, once it starts rolling in, so we might as well celebrate it. And today was the official opening of FOGFEST 2016.

And the RVs have been rolling in all day long. The many free concerts are attracting a lot of people over to the island.

I went down to Jocie’s porch where a crowd had gathered to listen to the first musicians. Our mayor had some appropriate words for the opening before the musicians moved in.

Again, it was a hot day and after the opening I went home and chilled inside the house.

Fog And Sun

Most coastal areas experience foggy days. When fog moves in, our surroundings change. Instead of seeing islands and lands above a sparkling horizon, we are now looking at strange formations in hundreds of shades of grey.

Rocks can show faces, and forests become dark secrets. Waters which were clear a few moments ago seem murky now. Our fantasy is playing tricks with us.

But when the sun is sharing the light with the fog it’s getting interesting. Foggy patches are now bathed in a golden light.

Sparkling reflections in a hazy light show contours but hide the details.

The dance of nature surrounds us and we gaze at it in wonder.
