According to La Presse, Premier François Legault is expected to announce the reopening of movie theatres, public swimming pools and indoor ice rinks across Quebec during March Break.

The new measures are expected to start Feb. 27 and end March 7 in hopes of discouraging illegal gatherings. 

Obviously, masks will still be mandatory in places like movie theatres and physical distancing will be enforced.

Rinks will be open for skating, but there will be no organized hockey, La Presse said.

The 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew is expected to remain in place.

The news comes as Quebec reports the lowest new count of COVID-19 cases since September, adding 669 new infections in 24 hours.

As of Tuesday morning, there were 9,399 known active cases of COVID-19 in Quebec.

We will update this story at 5:00 PM later today.
