      Prince Edward Island is imposing stronger COVID-19 restrictions as the province announces new record COVID-19 numbers on Thursday.

      “These additional steps to limit gatherings and contacts are in efforts to prevent further community transmission of COVID-19 in our province," said Dr. Heather Morrison, P.E.I.'s chief public health officer.

      Effective 8:00 am Dec. 24, the following measures will be in effect until Jan. 8, 2022:

      Wedding receptions, funeral receptions and wakes/visitations will not be permitted.
      All organized gatherings, such as worship services, theatres, wedding and funeral ceremonies, concerts, etc. must operate with a maximum of 50 people with physical distancing with individuals from different households. Venues may have up to 50 per cent capacity, with a maximum of 50 participants plus staff and officiants. Multiple cohorts of 50 are not permitted
      Worship services can only have one person singing, no choirs or congregational singing is permitted.
      Day camps will be limited to participant groups of 15 over the span of one day with physical distancing and masks. (This does not include licensed early learning and child-care centres or licensed school-aged centres, as they are already operating with elevated precautions in place.)

      These new measures are in addition to existing temporary measures announced to date...,

          P.E.I. announced 40 new COVID-19 cases Friday, hitting yet another daily case record.

          All cases are still under investigation and contact tracing is underway. Anyone identified as a close contact will be contacted by the province.

          There are now 198 active cases of COVID-19 on the Island. Some new cases aren't counted on the total tally, since they involve non-residents.

          The province said it's also limiting COVID-19 testing at Health P.E.I. testing clinics exclusively to symptomatic individuals, close contacts identified by Public Health, and those who have preliminarily tested positive with the rapid antigen test or at a point of entry...

                P.E.I. reports record-high 169 new COVID-19 cases Thursday
                Briefing comes as COVID-19 cases continue to mount

                P.E.I.'s chief public health officer said Islanders should keep their New Year's celebrations as small as possible as the province announced a record-high 169 new COVID-19 cases Thursday.

                Dr. Heather Morrison said at a briefing Thursday most new cases are presenting mild to moderate symptoms in fully-vaccinated people, something the province says shows the COVID-19 vaccine is working.

                Three people are currently in the hospital due to COVID-19. Morrison said another five are hospitalized for other reasons, but have also tested positive for the coronavirus.

                The announcement comes as cases continue to rise. Over the last seven days, the province reported over 600 cases, an average of 86 new cases per day. That's over half of the cases that have been confirmed in the province since the pandemic began.

                There are 680 active cases of COVID-19 on P.E.I. The province has had a total of 1,191 cases...
