  • Please refer to the IWK guidelines via the Firstline App (click on the Health PEI logo in the upper left-hand corner and under "Choose Location" select IWK Health Centre)
  • Pregnant women experience immunologic and physiologic changes which might make them more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including COVID-19.

  • Pregnant women might also be at risk for severe illness, morbidity, or mortality compared to the general population. This has been observed in cases of other related coronavirus infections and viral respiratory infections, such as influenza, during pregnancy.
