PEI Encouraged to Follow Safer Sex Practices

Prince Edward Island's chief public health officer says islanders should take precautions as a result of the rise in cases of sexually transmitted infections. Compared to the past 20 years, cases of gonorrhea have increased significantly, showing 15 lab-confirmed cases in the last 12 months in PEI.

"Over the past few years, Canada has seen an increase in the number of confirmed cases of sexually transmitted infections and Prince Edward Island is no exception," said Morrison.
