For the fifth day in a row, Prince Edward Island has identified no new cases of the novel coronavirus.
Speaking at a press briefing Monday, chief public health officer Dr. Heather Morrison said there are now only two active cases of COVID-19 on the island as 23 of its 25 cases have now recovered.
“I think this is really reinforcing that what we are doing is making a difference, but we need to keep going,” Morrison said. “This really reinforces to me that islanders need to stick together while we stay apart.”
