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 24, fitness centres, including gyms and sports facilities, can reopen across the province, including inside red zone areas.

During a Tuesday evening press conference, Quebec Premier François Legault announced the loosening of the province’s nightly curfew for all Red Zones, including Montreal.

As of March 17, Quebec’s nightly curfew has been moved back to 9:30 pm nightly. Except for the three regions in Yellow Zones where curfews no longer apply.
