COVID-19 Alert Level System - PEI
The Chief Public Health Office has developed an alert level system to support planning during COVID-19. The primary goals of the pandemic response in PEI are to minimize serious illness and mortality, and reduce societal disruption. There are three levels of alerts: New Normal, Caution and Restricted.
Prince Edward Island hopes to remain in the New Normal, while protecting our most vulnerable.
These levels are a basis for consideration and are subject to change. Progressive changes within each level are expected.
Decision making is guided by monitoring core criteria along with other factors. No single indicator is used to determine risk level and subsequent public health response.
Throughout the alert levels:
- priority must be put on services and supports areas for those most vulnerable (e.g. mental health, children, addiction, seniors, etc.)
- phase-specific public guidance applies.
