Prince Edward Island (PEI) has provided new information on their new travel measures, clarifying that non-PEI resident truck drivers entering the province will be required to self-isolate as much as possible, including not going into public areas, grocery stores or retail outlets, among several additional measures while travelling in the province. The new measures were announced on April 19 and will be in effect until at least May 17.
In addition, if a non-PEI resident driver is in PEI for longer than 24 hours, staying somewhere other than their truck, or planning on visiting someone in the province, they must apply for pre-travel approval with the province. If drivers become symptomatic at any time, they will be required to go into self-isolation immediately, while going into a drop-in centre to get tested for the virus as soon as possible.
Non-PEI resident commercial truck drivers traveling to PEI are not currently required to have a pre-departure test or to be tested in PEI provided they follow contactless loading and unloading procedures and other required measures outlined on this document: DPC-1872 Handout – COVID-19TRUCK DRIVERS april21_public
