Beth Scammell started this petition to Dr Jennifer Russell and

Currently, anyone without an exemption is required to self isolate for 14 days when entering NS and NB from either province.  This has been in place since January 9, 2021.

Dr. Russell, chief medical officer of health for New Brunswick, said at the time "The inconvenience is small compared to the illness this will prevent and the lives this will save."

Dr. Russell obviously has no idea the "inconvenience" the sustained closure of the border has had on the residents of Cumberland and Westmorland Counties. 

Residents of Cumberland and Westmorland Counties have routinely crossed the border as part of their daily lives.  The border has not defined who we love, the spread of our families, where we shop, where we work, where we get medical treatment, and the list goes on.

Closing the border has changed everything.  

COVID-19 cases here have remained low throughout the pandemic.  There is no proof that NS/NB travel has been a significant contributor to COVID-19 in either province, yet the residents of these areas have suffered much more than any other.  Financially, mentally, and emotionally.

Please sign if you feel the border between NS and NB should reopen. Share your story so our decision makers know the true effect this is having.
