Quebec lockdown extended another Four weeks

Premier-Francois-Legault-min

Quebec Premier François Legault announced today in an afternoon press conference that the Quebec government will prolong the lockdown another four weeks until November 23rd.

Over the month of October in Quebec the seven-day average has been over 1,000 cases of COVID-19.

The premier thinks that if the government extends the lockdown another 28 days they will see a reduction in cases. The Public Health officials will review in two weeks if some restrictions can be removed if there is a significant drop.

“Quebec hospitals in the red zones are a concern,” Said the premier. “Our health system is so fragile right now that… we just can’t afford to have 2,000, 3,000 cases per day,” said Health Minister Christian Dube.

As of Monday, grade 9 high school students will alternate in attending classes every other day like grade 10 and 11. The Premier said, “The age group in grade 9 have more case of COVID-19 and they tend to spread the virus more.”

Restaurants will stay closed except for takeout, gyms will remain closed, shopping centres and retail stores will be allowed to stay open. Quebecers are also asked not to see each other in social gatherings in the red zones unless they live alone, in which they are allowed to see one single person.
