The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived: deconfinement. While the fight is still not over, there are many restrictions and guidelines we must continue to follow in order to walk out of this pandemic safely and responsibly. It is safe to say that many Montrealers are feeling the weight of the pandemic slowly being lifted from their shoulders.
Yesterday, Premier François Legault announced Quebec’s deconfinement plan that will take place over the course of the next few months. From the ending of curfew, increase in vaccines, opening of bars and restaurants, to eventual venue reopenings… we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
While there were many dates and details that were thrown our way, here are the restrictions that we can expect to be lifted first:
As of May 28th:
- The curfew will be lifted everywhere in Quebec.
- Restaurant terraces will be able to reopen everywhere.
- Gatherings of eight people in private yards will be permitted.
- Travel between regions will be allowed.
- Indoor and outdoor halls and stadiums, where there are designated seats, will be able to accommodate 250 people per section, for a maximum of 2,500 people
