Quebec Premier François Legault urged residents to abide by coronavirus restrictions to have a shot at family gatherings during the holiday season, as the province mulls extending winter break in schools and deciding what will be permitted in December.
“We will have to be in good position so we have a collective mission in the coming weeks,” Legault told reporters. “We must contain the wave together to have a Christmas with our family.”
The update comes one week before restrictions in designated coronavirus red zones, including Montreal and Quebec City, are set to end — if all goes well. In regions on red alert, gyms, museums, bars and dining rooms are shuttered and most gatherings are banned until Nov. 23.
Quebec’s COVID-19 caseload has reached 126,054 after the province recorded 982 new infections Tuesday.
