As of June 23, 2021 people travelling from Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland and Labrador can enter Nova Scotia for any reason and will no longer have to self-isolate or complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form.
People travelling from New Brunswick can enter for any reason and will have isolation requirements based on their vaccination status and testing. That includes Nova Scotians returning from New Brunswick. These travellers will continue to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form, and upload their proof of vaccination.
They will receive automatic approval but it is conditional upon being able to show their proof of vaccination to border officials if asked.
Their isolation requirements are:
- people who have had two doses of vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in Nova Scotia must self-isolate until they receive a negative test result in Nova Scotia
- people who have had one dose of vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in Nova Scotia must self-isolate for at least seven days and cannot leave isolation until they get two negative tests results while in Nova Scotia; tests should be on day one or two and on day five or six
- people who have not had any vaccine and those who had a first dose within 14 days of arrival must isolate for 14 days; testing at the beginning and end of their isolation continues to be recommended
The province has also announced that starting June 30, Nova Scotia’s border will open to the rest of Canada with isolation requirements based on vaccination status and testing (the same as the current requirements for New Brunswick).
