Dining room service reopens for PEI residents

Prince Edward Island has entered the third phase of its Renew PEI, Together plan, which includes the reopening of restaurant dining room service for PEI residents.

As of June 1, restaurants in the province can begin serving PEI residents only within their dining rooms, with a maximum of 50 patrons per indoor facility and a maximum of six customers per table. Campgrounds, inns, and bed and breakfasts will also be allowed to accept customers who reside in the province.

Other restrictions lifted include those for libraries, arenas, swimming pools, child care centres, day camps, salons and spas, and elective dental treatments.

Facilities included in Phase 3 must still follow the public health guidance as laid out for all four phases of Renew PEI, Together and must ensure occupants adhere to physical distancing guidelines.

All businesses operating during the COVID-19 pandemic are also required to have an operational plan. Though the plan does not need to be submitted before reopening, it must be made available during inspections by a government official.

PEI’s fourth phase will begin in three weeks. For full details regarding stipulations set out in phase Phase 3, or for more information on the province’s reopening plan, visit PEI’s department of health and wellness website.
