Newfoundland and Labrador has gone almost three weeks with no active cases of COVID-19, but the same can’t be said for the Maritime provinces.
The last active case in this province recovered on June 18. The last new case was reported May 28.
The situation is different in P.E.I., which has reported five new cases of the disease since Friday, when the Atlantic bubble agreement came into effect, allowing Atlantic Canadian residents to travel freely within the region.
There were no cases reported Monday.
Until the weekend, P.E.I.’s last new case was reported in April. Officials said the two cases reported Sunday were contacts of one the first three. They do not attribute any of the cases to seasonal residents or the Atlantic bubble.
One of Friday’s cases was a woman who worked at the seniors facility Whisperwood Villa. Residents, staff and others associated with the facility have so far tested negative.
Nova Scotia reported one new case on Monday. It has a total of four active cases.
