Mauricie-Centre-du-Quebec region upgraded to red zone


As more regions in Quebec report an increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the province, Health Minister Christian Dube announced at a press conference on October 21st, that the entire Mauricie-Centre-du-Quebec region (excluding the city of Trois-Rivières) will be upgraded to the Level-4 Red Alert zone this weekend. The highest level alert measures will come into effect starting on Saturday October 24th, including the mandatory closures of restaurant dining rooms and bars, followed by measures for schools and sports programs on Monday October 26th.

With 1072 new Covid-19 cases on October 22nd (for the previous 24 hours), Quebec has seen over 1000 daily cases in the past 6 out of 7 days. The 1072 new cases brings the total number of people infected in the province to 96288, with a total of 6074 deaths, to date. In a statement from the Health Minister’s office, it says they have ‘observed significant travel between orange and red zone sectors, which contributes to increased spread between communities. The government would therefore like to remind people to avoid inter-regional travel if it is not essential’. Christian Dube also stated, “There is a worrisome increase in cases and community transmission in other sectors of the Mauricie region, which is why public health authorities have recommended this change for all MRCs.” Premier Francois Legault is expected to make more announcements today on the province’s measures and situation
