The increase in variants, especially the closure of restaurant dining rooms, will make the measures tougher.
Gyms are open and there is no change in curfew until 9:30 p.m.

“The alarm went off. There, we really need to stop making all the small exceptions. With variants, the number of cases can explode in a matter of days. The explosion of cases could happen anywhere in Quebec. We think everything is quiet and everything is fine, but in a few days it will explode. Everyone should be aware of this. For our part, we are monitoring the situation hour by hour with public health doctors. Elsewhere in Quebec we are ready to act quickly and forcefully if the situation worsens. Think about our children we want to see in school. Think of our nurses who were there a year ago. Let’s show solidarity. Please be very careful, ”explained Prime Minister Franకోois Legalt.
