Many parts of Quebec will be able to breathe a sigh of relief by Monday. Prime Minister Franకోois Legalt COVID-19-related hospitals were announced on Tuesday to be reduced in the coming weeks.
“I think we are doing very well … very well,” he told a news conference. When we compare it to Ontario or Alberta, we have half the cases and the hospital. “
Therefore special emergency measures will be suspended in some areas of the Capitol-National and Chowder-Appalaches – Lewis, as well as the RCMs of Bellechosse, Montgomery, L’Slate and Des Appalaches entering the Red Zone. This means that unwanted businesses can reopen, the curfew can be postponed until 9:30 pm, and face-to-face classes can be resumed at high schools in these areas.
However, only elementary schools can reopen in the MRCs of Beas-Sortigan, Robert-Clich and Les Etchemins, where infections are high and special emergency measures still apply.
The same situation is “very fragile” in A Toys. Papino and Valli-de-la-Gatino RCMs are the only exceptions, returning to the red zone.

ABTB-TEMISCAMING, which has four active cases of COVID-19, is able to move to the yellow zone; Hence citizens no longer need to respect the curfew.
In contrast, COVID-19 cases are on the rise in estre, especially in MRC du Granit. “It has become a per capita area with very active cases,” Mr. Legalt said. So, this is really worrying. Curfew at 8pm, closure of unwanted businesses and closure of high schools will be imposed there from midnight on Wednesday. The situation is also difficult in Boss-Saint-Laurent, where special emergency measures are in place.
“I know we ‘tan, everyone’s tan, but I think it’s good for a good summer, but the key is clearly a vaccine,” he recalled. The first drive-in vaccination center opened Tuesday at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
In addition, those with immunity who are anxiously waiting for their second dose should wait a while. Horacio Arruda, national director of public health, suggested last week that they could get it after 28 days. However, it is currently impossible to give them an appointment.
“We’re worried about that,” Guy Laprade said Destiny. His partner has leukemia and is undergoing chemotherapy. “It’s not easy already because she’s not had health before.”
Health Minister Christian Dubey has promised to act “very soon”. “I’m very anxious to be able to answer them, but I need to be able to set up according to the feedback we get released,” he explained. He is still waiting for the recommendation of his superiors. The appointment should probably be made through a health facility.
