English language schools on P.E.I., which rely heavily on foreign students, are hoping travel opens up soon.

Two cases of COVID-19, caught by testing at the border in visitors to P.E.I., were announced Monday. Both travellers were unvaccinated and are self-isolating.

Some bakeries on P.E.I. are too busy to take new cake orders as Islanders catch up on celebrations missed during the pandemic.

Some people in Japan are also enjoying some Island sweets, from a tourism operator who has been hosting virtual tea parties.
