As of Saturday, only the wearing of a mask will still be in force in the province, while a vaccine passport will no longer be required in places where it was compulsory, among others.

Capacity in bars and restaurants will also be restored to 100% from Saturday.

Last week, Quebec announced that wearing a mask could no longer be compulsory in public places from mid-April, with the exception of public transport.

Public health, however, keeps ten days of leeway from the beginning of April to send its recommendation, the time to see how the epidemiological situation evolves.

Another long-awaited measure: the return of proms for high school students, parties that have not been able to take place over the past two years. Dr. Boileau could reveal the terms during his press briefing.

For the occasion, Dr. Boileau will be accompanied by Marie-France Raynault, Senior Strategic Medical Advisor of the Public Health Department of the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS).
