As of Monday, Quebec’s COVID-19 restrictions have been eased across the province. Last week, Quebec Premier François Legault announced that coronavirus cases have plateaued in the province. “There are no more increases in cases and hospitalizations,” said Legault.

As a result, the government has downgraded most regions in Quebec to orange zones.

As of March 8, gyms, restaurants, venues, places of worship, cinemas, theatres, and indoor sports activities will be able to reopen with eased COVID-19 restrictions.
