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.

Between The Tides

It was one of those mornings when you woke up looking out the window and let out a deep sigh. "It's still foggy", you think. "Didn't the weather man speak of clear sunshine today?"

And after your breakfast you venture out, in my case with our dog. You drive down to Southern Head and you can hardly see the road in front of you.

But nearing the beach you notice this slight golden light behind all that fog. A ray of hope - maybe. Of course, my dog doesn't care. She ventures along, sniffing here and there, picking up a plastic bottle and buries it in the soft sand. Rounding Southern Head we are looking down Raccoon Beach. I start picking up some round stones. They are wet and their colours are just beautiful.
Suddenly my dog let's out one of her deep growls. She is looking out towards the water. What's there? I can't hear anything. There seems to be just fog. But she isn't letting up.
There! Now I can hear a splash. Something moves in the water. A seal? Or did she hear the distant blow-out from a whale?

It's too foggy to find out for sure, but Dixie listens intently.  She even barks a bit.

Finally, calming down, Dixie takes up checking out the crab shells again, and we begin our return walk. Suddenly I feel a slight breeze. It's the Northwest the weather forecast had predicted. A soft sunshine appears on the cliff side. 


When getting back into Herring Cove, the sun breaks through. In a matter of moments, the fog moves off  Deep blue water appears across the cove. The beach - light brown with a slight yellow tinge. It's low tide now. Soon it will turn again and 25ft of water will again wash over this beautiful beach.
