Don t burst the bubble: Maritimers hope Atlantic bubble holds for holidays

HALIFAX -- Its been over four months since the Atlantic provinces bought into the Atlantic bubble and so far, Maritimers have reaped the rewards.

But with COVID-19 cases and local concern on the rise -- and Christmas around the corner -- there are questions about the future of the Atlantic bubble.

When it comes to the bubble, one Halifax store owner has a holiday wish.

Milberry says her husband travels outside of the Atlantic bubble to manage their other store locations, which leads to a cycle of self-isolation. Thats one of the reasons theyre not going anywhere this Christmas.
