A recent article in the Bangor Daily News reports that, at current vaccination rates, the New Brunswick/Maine border could be opened by July 1st.

However, there are few caveats to this announcement. First, at least 75% of New Brunswickers 12 and older must be vaccinated by July 1st and hospitalization must remain low. As of late May, 57.3% of New Brunswickers have been vaccinated.

Second, only fully vaccinated travelers from Maine will be allowed entry without isolation. Unvaccinated travelers from Maine will be subject to a five-to-seven-day quarantine, followed by a negative COVID-19 test. Unvaccinated travelers from states other than Maine will have to follow a 14-day quarantine.

We will post border updates as we receive them!
