In response to increasing COVID-19 cases across the province, Premier François Legault has announced that private indoor gatherings will be limited to six people as of Dec. 26, with no more than two family bubbles.

Restaurants across Quebec are also being asked to limit tables to six people from a maximum of two family bubbles.

The announcement comes after another record has been broken for the daily COVID-19 cases in Quebec. On Wednesday, the Government of Quebec reported 6,361 new cases, a jump of 1,318 from yesterday's daily case count.

There were 445 total hospitalizations recorded earlier today, with 88 of those patients in intensive care.

Legault is encouraging families to postpone Christmas or other holiday gatherings if possible. He also said that tomorrow’s COVID-19 case count is expected to exceed 9,000 new cases.
