But both Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil and New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs urged residents to stay close to stay home.

Prince Edward Island, meanwhile, is barring all non-essential travel to to the province for two weeks.

Moments later, P.E.I Premier Dennis King confirmed that they would also be pulling out of the bubble.

"New Brunswickers travelling to PEI and Newfoundland and Labour including those going there to work, should contact the governments in those provinces to determine how today's changes affect them, what conditions are required and whether any registration or pre-approval is required", Higgs said.

Meanwhile, two major urban centres in Ontario where COVID-19 cases have been surging have now entered the lockdown stage of the province's pandemic protection plan, and will remain there for at least 28 days.

Nova Scotia reported 11 new cases of COVID-19 Monday, after the province flagged potential exposure at almost 40 locationsin Halifax over the weekend. One of Monday's infections was first identified during a rapid-testing pilot program in downtown Halifax Saturday night.

The move comes about as COVID-19 cases have been climbing in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with community spread being reported in those neighbouring provinces.
