Labrador/Quebec Border Opens

The Labrador borders are reopening for travel to neighbouring Quebec communities.

Premier Dwight Ball made the announcement today after meeting with various Labrador leaders.

The borders in Lab West and Southern Labrador will be reopened for travel to and from nearby communities like Fermont and Blanc Sablon.

While the border checkpoint will remain in place to monitor movement in Labrador West, the Lower North Shore checkpoint will be lifted at the end of Thursday.

Travellers between the communities will not be required to self-isolate unless they have symptoms or if they have travelled outside Newfoundland and Labrador or Quebec in the previous 14 days.
