“Montreal is taking measures to protect the population from COVID-19,” the city’s website said. “These measures are changing as the situation evolves, which is why we are constantly monitoring its evolution.”
City officials are also urging citizens to “wear face coverings” in public when it isn’t possible to maintain the mandated two-metre physical distancing rules.
Santé Montreal, the city’s health ministry, has updated its website, breaking down known cases per district.
