Food Island Partnership has created a list of resources for food & beverage businesses to open safely and efficiently.

Beginning June 1st all food premises will be able to offer indoor and outdoor dining options in addition to take out and delivery. As part of the Public Health Order updated on May 1st, all businesses in operation will require a COVID-19 operational plan with the policies and procedures that their business has in place.

The health and safety of employees and customers is everyone's top priority now and will continue to be moving forward. PEI Food & Beverage operators are required to implement the measures outlined in the Food Premise Guidelines to ensure safety for all who visit their establishment.

*Please note, all plans are subject to change as the situation continues to evolve. Organizations and businesses are not required to re-open at the initiation of the relevant phase and may choose to continue operating virtually or online. Not all organizations and businesses have been identified in the respective phases. Those referenced represent the types of services and activities that fall within that phase. Organizations and businesses that are unsure under which phase they may re-open may seek direction from the Chief Public Health Office.  This information is accurate as of the date of posting and may change after that time.
