A P.E.I. woman is hoping to highlight some of the Island's attractions, and give publicity to local businesses and tourism operators affected by COVID-19 restrictions.

P.E.I.'s Opposition health critic wants the province's health minister to authorize Health PEI to publicize job postings for nurse practitioners.

There were no new cases of COVID-19 reported for P.E.I. over the weekend, but there were some potential exposure sites related to travellers.

The Chief Public Health Office says anyone who travelled on Air Canada flight 7554 from Montreal to Charlottetown on July 27 should monitor for symptoms.

In a separate case, the CPHO reported potential exposures at two restaurants and a golf course from July 23-26.

Flair Airlines landed its first flight at Charlottetown Airport on Monday, the third new flight at the airport in a week.
