The PEI Government announced Circuit Breaker measures today, effective at 8 am Sunday and going until March 14 (end date may be earlier or later depending on progress). A number of these measures will impact PEI curling facilities and Curl PEI Events.
These time-limited interventions are being put into place in order to get control of the situation at hand and break the chain of transmission of COVID-19. The measures will be reassessed throughout.
These restrictions override all other existing sector-specific public health guidance.
