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.

Coming here

Dear Visitor to Campobello Island!
You may be coming from a big city or the great plains of the midwest. You may live in the mountains, a desert or in the deep woods. It'll all be different from coming here to the shores of Campobello Island, where nature is dominated by the North Atlantic ocean. Oh, it can be very gentle but also very rough. I know you'd be looking for sunshine and maybe a gentle breeze, and more than often we enjoy that kind of beautiful weather. But there are days when the winds pick up bringing dark clouds and rain, or the fog rolls in from the south swallowing the island.  But regardless of what kind of surprise nature will offer to you, keep in mind that it will change again quickly. A grey morning doesn't mean the sun won't be out again in the afternoon. Speaking of the sun, you ought to see our sunsets. Take a boat ride at sunset or just sit at the Pier Waterfront Restaurant and watch the sun go down. Or we can get you up to Friar's Head from where the sunsets are spectacular. 

The American book author Henry Beston was a master in describing nature, and though his experiences are from Cape Cod, they can be lived again here on Campobello Island.

“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach. I have heard them all, and of the three elemental voices, that of ocean is the most awesome, beautiful and varied.” 
― Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life on the Great Beach of Cape Cod


And it is not only in the summer that one can enjoy the island. The pictures in this posting were taken in December and January.
