Groups of people gathering indoors will become a welcome site again as Quebec public health has announced the easing of indoor gatherings and physical distancing restrictions.
Quebec’s National Director of Public Health, Dr. Horacio Arruda, alongside Senior Public Health Adviser Dr. Richard Massé made the announcement from Quebec City last week.
People in groups of maximum 50 — such as concerts, events, or at private residences — will be able to gather as of today, coinciding with Montreal’s opening of restaurants.
