Two new cases of COVID-19 in P.E.I Thursday; both unvaccinated non-residents
Health officials on Prince Edward Island are reporting two new cases of COVID-19 Thursday.
The individuals, both in their 50s, are close contacts of a previously announced case related to domestic travel outside Atlantic Canada.
Both cases are unvaccinated and self-isolating.
The two individuals are not permanent residents of P.E.I. and therefore they will not show up in the province's case count. Instead, they will be included in the case count in their home jurisdiction.
