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.

We Are Stretching The Season!

Are you one of those working throughout all summer and must take your vacation when everybody else is back at work? Or do you simply enjoy the quieter time of the year when accommodations are just waiting for you, and wait lines have vanished?

Either way, Campobello Island and neighbouring Lubec are looking forward to your visit this late fall and winter. Campobello Sightseeing has teamed up with the Peacock House B+B in Lubec and together we will make your visit memorable. The Peacock House, a stately historic building in central Lubec overlooking the Bay of Fundy, is an ideal location from which to explore Campobello Island and the near-by West Quoddy Lighthouse. For their off-season guests the B+B is offering 3 delicious meals a day!


Your days can be filled!

Our activities include wonderful hikes along lonely beaches, visits to our lighthouses, talks about history with locals, photography trips and sometimes local events.
