    I think they recently changed the requirements for NB - instead of having them in the regular Atlantic Bubble, they are treated the same as the rest of Canada - two doses, you can come without quarantine, and then varying quarantine timeframes if you've had 1 or no doses.

    You should be good to go! I'd be upset if they restricted things further based on cases alone as I have family in NB. Hospitalizations in both provinces remain low.
