Phase #4

This is Phase Four of four distinct phases that will be implemented with a progressive lifting of public health measures on individuals, communities and organizations over three-week periods.

    Looking Ahead

    It is likely that Phase 4 and beyond will be a new way of life, a new “normal” for Prince Edward Island.

    Eventually we will be able to...

    • spend time with our family members in long-term care and others at greatest risk of severe illness,
    • have large gatherings of friends and family,
    • enjoy festivals and events, and
    • connect with those from other provinces and countries.

    We will continue to seek innovative solutions to help us adapt and live with COVID-19.

    There is hope. Prince Edward Island is resilient and full of caring, intelligent and hard-working people. Together, we will cautiously and deliberately take these first few steps in response to the global pandemic: Renew PEI.

    Public Health Guidance

    The following is public guidance for all phases of Renew PEI Together:

    • Stay informed, be prepared and follow public health advice
    • Maintain physical distancing of 2 m (6 ft) with individuals who are not part of one’s household
    • Adhere to mass gathering limits (see Phases)
    • Stay home when ill and call 811 promptly if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; if not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains 60% - 80% alcohol
