Quebec introduces new restrictions as province anticipates increase in COVID-19 cases: Legault

CA, 07 Apr 2021
Quebec Premier François Legault announced a tightening of COVID-19 restrictions in the province’s red and orange zones as the number of new cases linked to variants continues to grow.

“The variants forced us to act in four regions last week,” Legault said Tuesday, adding that while the situation remains under control in Montreal it could change rapidly.

The new measures include the closing of gyms, the return of hybrid learning for high school students in Grades 9, 10 and 11, as well as a maximum of 25 people allowed in places of worship — down from 250.

The move comes less than two weeks after students were ordered back to school and gyms were given the green light to reopen after being shuttered for close to six months.
