Atlantic Canadians travelling within the region will not need to self-isolate for 14 days
Islanders and fellow Atlantic Canadians travelling within the region will not need to self-isolate for 14 days. However, some public health and screening measures will be maintained as part of the travel bubble:
- Atlantic visitors to Prince Edward Island will be required to complete a self-declaration form online and provide a copy of the completed form at points of entry to the province;
- public health and proof of residency screening will be maintained at points entry to all Atlantic Canadian provinces;
- all Atlantic Canada residents, including seasonal residents, should continue to practice physical distancing, regular hand washing, stay home if feeling unwell and contact a primary care provider or call 8-1-1 to be directed to testing for COVID-19.
For more information on the “Atlantic Bubble” see: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/atlantic-provinces-travel-bubble
All non-essential travel into Prince Edward Island from outside of the “Atlantic Bubble” is prohibited. Peace officers are authorized to turn any person(s) away who attempts to enter the province for unnecessary travel and to require any person(s) to leave the province immediately. To minimize these occurrences, PEI has implemented a Pre-Travel Approval Process for travelers. For details, visit Pre-Travel Approval Process

On May, 1, 2020 the PEI Government launched the Renew PEI, Together outlining the guiding principles and phased approach to reopening businesses, services and public spaces. The plan will be implemented in four distinct phases with a progressive lifting of public health measures on individuals, communities and organizations over three-week periods. Progression will be gradual and constantly evaluated based on the latest public health information from PEI’s Chief Public Health Office. Decisions during each phase will be based on public health evidence and continuous monitoring. If there are concerns about moving into a next phase, progress will be slowed, halted or even reversed to continue to protect the health and safety of Islanders.
