As of March 29, high school students across Quebec (including red zones) returned to in-person classes full-time.

During a press conference last week, Premier François Legault said public health would be ramping up vaccines, hoping to administer at least 50,000 per day “as soon as possible.”

“Last week, we pushed back the curfew, but it doesn’t mean we should visit people — it is still prohibited,” he said.

“It is very important that when it is your turn, you go get vaccinated,” he concluded.
