COVID-19 on P.E.I.: What's happening Monday, Jan. 11

·1 min read

Statistics Canada is mailing out test kits to tens of thousands of people to study the prevalence of coronavirus in the country, in the first survey of its kind launched by the agency.

High schools on P.E.I. are reviewing pandemic plans and looking at new steps they can take to prevent an outbreak of COVID-19.

With its residents stuck in the building and most regular activities curtailed by the pandemic, a seniors' home in western P.E.I. is looking for Valentine's cards to brighten the hallways.

Until at least Feb.10 — likely longer — all passengers departing from Charlottetown Airport will have to go to or through Montreal.

The total number of positive COVID-19 cases reported on P.E.I. is holding steady at 102, with eight still active. There have been no deaths or hospitalizations.
