The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in the province has gone down by more than 250 since last Sunday.
There are now 1,926 such patients in hospital — 68 fewer than the previous day and more than 250 fewer than a week ago.
Of those patients, 66 are in intensive care—an increase of two.
The province also announced that two more deaths had been attributed to the virus, bringing its death toll to 15,139.
Additionally, the province announced that a further 822 cases had been confirmed through PCR testing at its clinics. Insofar as this method of testing is not accessible to most Quebecers, the case numbers are not wholly representative of the situation in the province.
