People on Prince Edward Island who test positive for COVID-19 will be legally required to self-isolate for a while longer.

The province announced Thursday it has extended its isolation mandate by two more weeks.

Islanders with COVID-19 must isolate for seven days from when symptoms began or from the date of their positive COVID-19 test. Those who are immunocompromised must do so for 10 days.

Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Heather Morrison said that with cases going up, now is not the time to phase out the mandate.

“It certainly appears that we may have a summer wave. In some provinces, they’re calling it a wavelet,” she said in an interview with CBC News: Compass.

“But the modelling would suggest that we are anticipating a fall surge of cases and that’s certainly what we want to prepare for.”
