Prince Edward Island has three new COVID-19 cases involving travel, the Chief Public Health Office said in a news release late Wednesday.

DJs in Prince Edward Island say business is starting to pick up now that the province is allowing dancing at weddings.

A P.E.I. woman is hoping to highlight some of the Island's attractions, and give publicity to local businesses and tourism operators affected by COVID-19 restrictions.

Some potential exposure sites related to travellers were reported on the weekend.

The Chief Public Health Office says anyone who travelled on Air Canada flight 7554 from Montreal to Charlottetown on July 27 should monitor for symptoms.

In a separate case, the CPHO reported potential exposures at two restaurants and a golf course from July 23-26.
