PEI moves out of Modified Red Phase at midnight, permitting curling practice but not games

The PEI Government announced today that the Modified Red Phase will be ending at midnight tonight, with a return to Circuit Breaker measures, which go until March 14 at 8 am. A number of these measures impact PEI curling facilities and Curl PEI Events. As well, there have been a few changes, including allowing inside food and beverage consumption with certain restrictions.

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.

  • Rehearsals and individual or team practices  are permitted in accordance with gathering limits, but games, tournaments and competitions are not permitted;
