Newfoundland And Labrador Now Requiring A Travel Permit For Holiday Visits

If what you really wanted for Christmas were relaxed travel restrictions in Newfoundland and Labrador — the province’s public health department has a lump of coal for you. With case numbers spiking across the rest of Canada, health officials in the Atlantic province say existing restrictions must stay in place over the holidays. Anyone wishing to come to the province for Christmas must apply for a travel exemption and isolate for two weeks upon arrival. And to soothe the nerves of little kids — chief medical officer Dr. Janice Fitzgerald says Santa is an essential worker and will be allowed in to deliver presents.
