The Minister of Public Security explained on Wednesday that an “increased” police presence would be maintained from Friday, February 26 to Sunday, March 7 to cover two weekends of the break.
“Spring break is not a week of rest,” the Deputy Prime Minister reiterated.
As Prime Minister Franకోois Legalt announced the day before, the operation is aimed at ensuring a sense of family bubble, a ban on meetings and respect for curfew.
The Red Zone, like the Orange Zone, is one of the most visited places, especially for the police:
- Relays on snowmobile trails
- Snow Rinks.
Other places identified as “potential collection points”, such as shopping malls and storefront businesses, are also visited by police to ensure compliance.
Ditto for restaurants dining rooms in the Orange Zone, where customers from the Red Zone are prohibited.
Minister Gilbalt argued that the government’s priority for police roadblocks was in line with public health.
These were requested by opposition parties, especially in the Orange Zones, to limit the import of new variants.
