During COVID-19, the Maritimes created an "Atlantic Bubble". What do you think about this decision by public health?
I personally think that there are many positive and negative effects of having a bubble for a specific territory on the one hand. I think the main advantage is that obviously it protects the citizens of that area from Contracting covid-19. So if there was a lot less Travelers coming into the Atlantic bubble from areas with a lot of cases such as peel region or York Region, it definitely protected them from actually Contracting covid-19 and
And that would also again impact hospitalizations and deaths which would have a lot of positive effects in that case. I also think that it would really help the public living in the within the mobile with their fear and anxiety. So if knowing that they didn't actually have to deal as much with the fear of covid it definitely helped them a lot. The third factor that I think is really beneficial for them is the economy within the Atlantic bubble because people who lived within their you know, the businesses don't have to close as much
and if they had restricted covid-19 procedures in place, they could actually relax them and they were able to do are able to actually
Tara I actually able to go and go to the businesses and the economy wasn't a factor as much however, I can see there are some negative impacts to consider as well. The first one that I can see is that you would really restrict the access of family members who we want to go and see the family members who live within the bubble so it's possible that maybe someone wasn't feeling well and they couldn't actually go and see their family member in their final moments and another negative impact that I can think of is
is that it would definitely be negative in terms of access to resources. So it's possible that when the Atlantic bubbles created it would also affect trades and the goods and services that people in within the bubble would be able to receive so I think all in all these Leti bubble had a lot more positive impact stand- However, I also think that there should have been a lot of planning going into it to ensure that those negative effects are not that severe so as an example making sure
that if a family member is not feeling well or is suffering from disease or really need support from people outside of the mobile. Do you would be able to access that and making sure that creating the Atlantic bubble wouldn't create problems in terms of Trades and goods and services that the public could access.
