As of today, 250 people are allowed to gather indoor across the province, and thousands of doctors, medical professionals, and quebec residents are very concerned with the risk of a second wave of COVID-19.
A petition was created by a montreal orthopedic surgeon who feels like the province is moving too fast, too soon when it comes to this phase of reopening, and the thousands of quebecers who have signed agree.
the new regulation will see quebecers heading back to venues like movie theatres and concert halls for the first time in months. This Saturday Quebec confirmed another hundred and 41 cases of COVID-19.
Quebec will authorize public gatherings of 250 people as of August 3rd.
Public health made the recommendation in parallel to monitoring the evolution of the pandemic.
The distancing measures in force remain, but large performance halls, for example, will be able to increase their capacity for assistance from 50 to 250 people.
This will also be the case for cinemas, places of worship, banquet rooms and places for training or demonstration of indoor amateur sports.
On the other hand, private parties, inside or outside, residences or chalets must still respect the rule of 10 people.
