The Island has three new cases of COVID-19, all related to travel outside the Atlantic region and all in people who have been self-isolating, says the province’s Chief Public Health Office. Passengers on three Air Canada flights are being advised to monitor themselves for symptoms and report for a test if any appear.
Premier Dennis King made it official early Thursday morning: Santa Claus is free of COVID-19 and has his final approval to visit P.E.I. tonight.
