As of Monday, June 28, all of Quebec will be in a Green Zone!
Quebec Premier Francois Legault tweeted the news ahead of a press conference this afternoon with Health Minister Christian Dubé and public health director Horacio Arruda.
"Quebec's situation continues to improve," said Legault. "We are exactly where we thought we were with our vaccination plan and our deconfinement plan. As of Monday, all of Quebec is moving to the green level!"
The switch will ease several restrictions across the province and comes as the number of new COVID-19 cases and other pandemic indicators have steadily decreased in recent weeks.
The new regulations are as follows:
10 people from 3 households will be able to participate in private indoor gatherings.
20 people can gather privately outdoors.
10 people per table will be allowed to sit together indoors at restaurants and bars.
20 people can sit together on terrasses at restaurants and bars.
50 players can participate in outdoor sports, with 50 spectators.
25 players can participate in indoor sports, with 25 spectators.
250 people can gather in places of worship, for services, weddings, or funerals.
Wedding and funeral receptions can accommodate 25 people indoors, 50 people outdoors.
Legault also said 80% of the Quebec population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and hopes that young people (aged 18 to 40) will continue to get vaccinated.
