Quebec reported 145 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, but the good news is that there were no new deaths reported.

As of Monday, there are 200 people being treated for COVID-19 in Quebec hospitals, an increase of three from the 197 reported Sunday. Of those in a hospital, seven are in intensive care, down three from the 10 reported a day earlier.

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 58,728 confirmed cases in Quebec and 5,667 people have died.

Deputy Premier Geneviève Guilbault and Richard Massé, senior public health adviser gave an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province Monday afternoon and commented on a "worrying trend" that there is a spike in contagion among teens and young adults.

Despite this warning, Guilbault nor her colleagues did not provide any further info or data about just how many young people in the province have been confirmed to have the virus. 

Speaking at a press conference in Montreal, Guilbault said more and more teens and young adults are gathering in large groups and attending parties— thus increasing the risk of getting sick and passing on COVID-19 to others. She urged Quebec youth to “mobilize to follow public health guidelines.”

Furthermore, she reminded everyone that some young people can face long-term health issues due to COVID-19— some of which have reportedly been quite severe.

"We all understand that you want to go out and see your friends, but you don't want to end up in intensive care,” Guilbault said. "This is serious."

Guilbault is asking 15 to 34-year-olds in the province to become "influencers" in their communities and spread the message by asking friends to follow Quebec's public health rules.
