Following consultation with the Chief Public Health Officers of both Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, the decision has been taken to defer commencement of the Wood Islands/Caribou ferry service 2020 operating season. The commencement date will be subject to ongoing review but will be no earlier than June 1, 2020.
Donald Cormier, Vice-President and General Manager of Northumberland Ferries Limited, stated: “We are grateful for the advice of Dr. Morrison and Dr. Strang. We understand that the fight to control the COVID-19 virus is at a very important stage and so sought the advice of our public health leaders. The health of the public, our employees, and our customers is the priority. We look forward to commencing service as soon as advisable from a public health standpoint.”
