Quebec is set to ease more restrictions later this week, specifically within festival capacity and serving times at bars and restaurants.

Premier Francois Legault tweeted Monday that as of Aug. 1, outdoor stadiums, venues, and festivals can increase audience capacity to 15,000 people, up from the current 5,000 maximum.

Indoors, the capacity will increase to 7,500, with each section of the crowd allowed to include up to 500 people. The previous indoor limit was 3,500, with sections of up to 250 people.

Meanwhile, as of August 1 at 12:01 am, bars and restaurants in Quebec will be allowed to serve alcohol until 1 am, an hour later than the rules that are currently in place. Dancing, however, remains prohibited and bars and microbreweries will have to close at 2 a.m.
