Prince Edward Island reported two new cases of COVID-19 Monday, while Nova Scotia and New Brunswick reported one each.

P.E.I. health officials said the two cases involved residents of another province who were unvaccinated, and they have been isolating since their infection was detected at the point of entry.

The new case in Nova Scotia is located in the central zone, which includes Halifax, and involves a contact of a previously reported infection.

The province has 13 active reported cases, with no one in hospital with COVID-19, and health officials say 57.6 per cent of the total population is fully vaccinated.

New Brunswick's new case is located in the Fredericton region and is related to travel. Health officials say the province has six active reported cases and no one in hospital with the disease.

Officials in that province say 64.4 per cent of residents 12 and up are fully vaccinated.

New Brunswick will enter the green phase of its reopening plan this Friday at midnight, under which all public health orders — including the mask mandate and limits on indoor gatherings — will be lifted.

Newfoundland and Labrador reported no new COVID-19 cases Monday.
