The activities of the Voltigeurs are still suspended indefinitely. This is the third formation of the QMJHL to be grappled with cases of COVID-19 after the Armada of Blainville-Boisbriand and the Phœnix of Sherbrooke.

As provided for in the protocol, the Direction de santé publique du Center-du-Québec opened an investigation to assess contacts between players and staff at the Voltigeurs.
