Quebec museums, drive-in cinemas, and libraries to open at the end of the month

The Quebec government continues its surge of reopenings, announcing that libraries, drive-in cinemas, and museums throughout the province can reopen as of May 29.

The announcement was made in Montreal on Friday, as Deputy Premier Geneviève Guilbault said public health has given the green light for certain cultural venues to open at the end of the month.

Guilbault said Quebecers will be able to go “forward with more and more access to the freedom we all want again,” assuming citizens remain diligent and respect guidelines put forth by public health and in turn, individual businesses and venues.

Guilbeault warned, however, that the gradual reopening of Quebec is all part of a fine balance. “If we don’t follow the rules and we deconfine too quickly, we could have to start taking steps back,” she said in French.
