More regions of Quebec move to green zones next week



MONTREAL – As active coronavirus cases decline and vaccination rates rise, three other regions in Quebec will ease their COVID-19 restrictions next week.

On Monday, June 21, Mauricie and Center-du-Québec, Bas-Saint-Laurent and Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean will lower their alert level to reach Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord, Gaspésie – Îles-de-la-Madeleine, and Nord-du-Québec in the green zone.

Under the new rules, a maximum of 10 people from different addresses, or guests from up to three households, can meet in private residences.

Physical distancing and face coverings are “strongly recommended,” the Department of Health wrote in a press release Tuesday.

A maximum of 50 people can attend weddings and funerals. Apart from these activities, places of worship can accommodate up to 250 people.

Restaurants and bars can accommodate 10 people or the equivalent of three residences per table.

Cinemas and theaters can open up to 250, or up to 2,500 provided the establishment can divide participants into independent groups of 250. Face coverings are required and guests should keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters.

The new measures will not affect those who travel to the regions, however.

Residents of yellow zones traveling to green zones should always follow the rules of their home region.

On the other hand, residents of green zones must follow the rules of the yellow zones when traveling.
