Premier François Legault has announced the loosening of several restrictions across the province on Tuesday evening, including ending Quebec’s nightly COVID-19 curfew.
Legault says the nightly curfew will expire on Friday, May 28.
On the same day, Quebec will allow terraces to reopen for restaurants, people will be allowed to gather outdoors in groups of three (from three different addresses), the interregional travel ban will expire, and large venues will be able to host a limit of 250 people.
In terms of the province’s curfew, Quebec enacted the rule on January 8 and it was initially set to expire on February 7. Quebec is the only province or state in North America to enforce a nightly curfew.
