P.E.I. confirmed four new positive COVID-19 cases Monday.
Two of the cases are essential workers — a woman in her 40s and a man in his 20s — neither work in the heath-care industry, according to the province.
The two other cases are children, under the age of 10, who are part of the same family.
Both groups arrived back to the province after international travel. All four are self-isolating, a news release from the province said.
The Chief Public Health Office said there will be more updates on travel related to the cases at a news briefing on Tuesday.
There was another case of COVID-19 confirmed on the Island Friday, which was a man in his late teens who arrived following international travel. That news came after two other cases were confirmed during routine testing of self-isolating essential workers on Thursday. The workers had travelled to the province from another country.
P.E.I. has confirmed a total of 51 cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, with no deaths or hospitalizations. There are seven active cases on the Island.
Masks will play a big role as many Island students get ready to head back to classrooms Tuesday.
Students and staff at UPEI will be required to wear non-medical masks in campus buildings.
Many students at Summerside Intermediate School won't have to worry about buying non-medical masks for the first day of class. A local business organization donated hundreds of masks to the school.
Masks will be required when students get on the bus. Bus drivers have extras to hand out to students who may have forgotten theirs. Additional cleaning protocols have also been put in place.
