COVID-19 on P.E.I.: What’s happening Saturday, Oct. 17 | CBC News


If you’re taking the ferry between Wood Islands, P.E.I., and Caribou, N.S., be sure to pack a mask.

Northumberland Ferries Ltd. has made wearing masks mandatory for people on the ferry, with a few exceptions.

The Council for Recovery and Growth has met about 30 times virtually since it was formed back in May and has received about 1,000 submissions, P.E.I. Premier Dennis King says.

King says he plans to continue to push for specific support for the airline industry after WestJet announced flight suspensions across the Atlantic region.

A long-distance running group on P.E.I. is running between Charlottetown and Summerside on Saturday to honour a fellow runner — and mark 40 years since Terry Fox ran on the Island.

P.E.I. theatres reflect on a “devastating” season due to COVID-19.

Buddhist monks and nuns on P.E.I. are taking extra precautions against COVID-19 by creating their own bubbles on their campuses.

A Halloween tradition is continuing in Summerside this year, with a new twist to meet the challenges posed by COVID-19.
