Tough new COVID-19 measures kicked in at midnight Sunday, meaning some things are no longer possible on the Island until at midnight Wednesday.

The P.E.I. government's so-called modified red restricted measures are meant to curb outbreaks of COVID-19 in Summerside and Charlottetown.

As of midday Wednesday, 22 new cases had been confirmed in the past week, and two earlier cases involving Atlantic Canada travel had been confirmed as the more contagious B117 variant of COVID-19.

Dr. Heather Morrison, the province's chief public health officer, provided a long list of possible exposure sites and dates during a briefing Sunday afternoon, and later added a handful more. They all appear in the searchable spreadsheet below, along with a link to places where COVID-19 testing is available across the Island.

Exposure sites and times

Islanders are strongly urged to seek a COVID-19 test if they were at any of the following locations at the times given, even if they do not have symptoms.

Note that the province said on its Facebook page Monday: "When we list an exposure location and time, it's only for those specific times. If you were there before or after that time, you would not be considered a risk for exposure."
