Playgrounds and breakfast diners were busy Sunday as Islanders celebrated the second Father's Day of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gardening has become a popular pastime for Prince Edward Islanders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some local greenhouses and gardeners across P.E.I. shared their thoughts on popular growing trends this spring.

The Kings Playhouse in Georgetown, P.E.I., is exhibiting the work of an 11-year-old Syrian artist and refugee, along with the work of a 13-year-old artist from Charlottetown.

We're starting a new feature at CBC P.E.I. called What a Life. We're going to remember some of the Islanders we've lost over the past year, but weren't able to come together to celebrate in a traditional way because of the pandemic. First up: Cheryl Young.

There have been 206 cases of COVID-19 on P.E.I., and none are active. There have been no deaths and two hospitalizations. Prince Edward Island has reported no new cases since June 3.
