As of May 20th, Quebec Junior Education Minister Isabelle Charest announced Quebec's plan to gradually restart of sports, leisure and outdoor activities in the province including the Montreal metropolitan area.
The First Phase of sporting deconfinement
Besides singles tennis and golf, running, hiking in the forest, individual water sports such as canoeing, kayaking, rowing and scuba diving, triathlon, climbing and fishing will be allowed.
Wearing a mask is recommended when practicing these activities, but it is not compulsory. Team sports, however, will not be allowed.
Quebec has not yet announced, for the moment, the reopening of public swimming pools, play modules in parks, day camps or even campgrounds.
The outdoor sites, such as national parks, those of Sépaq or outfitters, will be partially open. Thus, only walking or cycling, and day fishing activities will be allowed.
Rental of chalets or equipment will have to wait.
Golf and tennis is now permitted but with strict conditions, certain facilities in golf clubs will remain closed. In fact, only the courses, the practice fields, the snacks in take-out mode, the shops and the toilets will be accessible. The locker rooms, golf bag cleaning and storage services will also remain closed.
Two golfers may share a cart if they live at the same address or if the cart is equipped with a separator between the two places. The sharing of material will however be prohibited.
As for managers of outdoor tennis courts, they will also have to take precautions as recommended by Tennis Canada. It is also suggested to limit the number of players at the same time on the boards, even if it means using only one field out of two.
