  • Bars and restaurants can now close their doors as of 2a.m., and can continue to serve alcohol until 1a.m..
  • Ten people or up to three private residences are permitted to share a table, while other tables must be minimum 2 meters apart.
  • Outdoor terrasses can seat up to 20 people per table, with a 1 meter distance between tables.
  • Outdoor stadiums and auditoriums can seat up to 7,500, with at least one empty seat in between parties from different households.
  • 15,000 people are now permitted at outdoor festivals with a two-metre distance requirement and mask-wearing recommended by public health officials.

With the conversation of the fourth wave on the horizon, Premier Francois Legault and other health officials are still encouraging youth between the ages of 18-29 to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to help limit the spread of the virus come September.
