CHARLOTTETOWN — Prince Edward Island is reporting three new cases of COVID-19 today.

Officials say the infections involve a person in their 30s, a person in their 20s and someone between 10 and 19 years old.

All three cases have been linked to travel outside of Atlantic Canada.

There are now seven active reported COVID-19 infections on the Island, and 224 cases have been diagnosed since the onset of the pandemic.

Online government data shows over 90 per cent of Islanders aged 12 and over have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 75 per cent are fully immunized with two shots.

According to COVID-19 Tracker Canada, a website run by volunteers who compile data released by federal and provincial health authorities, Prince Edward Island has the highest rate of partially vaccinated residents among all Canadian provinces.
