The health measures imposed on Quebec since the beginning of October will be extended by another four weeks, announced Prime Minister François Legault.
During a press briefing, the government announced that the plateau observed in the number of new cases does not allow the instructions to be relaxed. The government considered the possibility of extending the measures for only two weeks, but François Legault considered it more prudent to go for four weeks. However, everything will be reassessed in two weeks.
“If the indicators show a sustained drop in cases, outbreaks and hospitalizations, we can relax instructions,” said the Prime Minister.
For now, Quebec invites Quebecers to “stick to going to work and going to school”.
