The Quebec government confirmed on Wednesday that students will be allowed to return to class on Monday, January 17.

Legault shared the announcement on Twitter Wednesday evening stating, “Good news! The public health department is in favour of reopening elementary and high schools as of next Monday, as planned. CEGEPs and universities will also be able to return in person and we will allow them a certain margin to adjust (to the reality).”

In addition to students headed back to class, a recent report by TVA stated the possibility that Legault will lift the province-wide curfew on Monday. This comes with the belief that the peak of the Omicron wave has already peaked in the province.

When the measures were first announced back in December, Legault pointed out that the curfew would be one of the first measures lifted in the deconfinement process. Last year, the curfew lasted from January 9th to May 28, 2021.

While this is still speculation and has yet to be confirmed by the Quebec government, we can expect more announcements to come early next week.
