COVID-19 data is no longer updated by the Quebec Ministry of Health on weekends or holidays.
Quebecers can come a little closer today.
The Quebec Ministry of Health specifies that the mandatory distance that must be maintained between people of different addresses will be one meter instead of two. This will apply both indoors and outdoors.
However, for singing activities (such as choir practices) and for high intensity exercise in gyms, the two-meter distance will still apply.
There are also no more restrictions on the capacity of retail stores. Business owners will be responsible for ensuring that it is possible for customers to keep a distance of one meter from each other.
During amateur sporting events with spectators seated in stands or bleachers, the maximum capacity will be 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors.
The rules for wearing a mask have not changed.
