Public health in Quebec does not rule out the possibility of more doses of the vaccine against COVID-19

12 February

Starting Saturday, February 12, there will be no legal limits on private gatherings in Quebec — just in time for the Super Bowl. But, public health recommends that Quebecers limit their private gatherings to 10 people or three domestic bubbles.

A similar rule will apply to seating arrangements in restaurant dining areas. Since February 12, 10 people or residents of three households can sit together at a table in a Quebec restaurant.

February 14th

Valentine’s Day will not only be for lovers this year, it will also be for sportsmen in our province.

Quebec gyms will be able to reopen their doors on February 14, at 50% of their capacity. The same rule applies to spas and saunas in the province.

On that day, sports matches will be allowed to resume. And outdoor shows will be allowed to hold up to 5,000 people in the audience.

the 21st of February

As of February 21, stores in Quebec will no longer have limited capacity.

Leisure centres, such as arcades, bowling alleys and water parks, can reopen on February 21 at half capacity, with a vaccination passport required for entry.

On that day, places of worship will be allowed to operate at 50% capacity or a maximum of 500 people, with mandatory vaccination passports.

Since February 21, the rented private rooms can accommodate up to 50 people. If you need a place to host your friend’s birthday party, you know what to do. Remember that the vaccination passport will be mandatory for all guests.

And finally, that same Monday, cinemas, concert halls and indoor events can operate at 50% capacity, against the current limit of 500 people.

February 28

The following Monday will be a day that many Quebecers have been waiting for: the reopening of bars in Quebec! As of February 28, all bars and casinos in the province will be able to reopen at half capacity. But, dancing and karaoke will not yet be allowed.

Although sports matches can resume from February 14, sports tournaments and competitions are only allowed to resume on February 28.

For anyone who has accepted the day-to-day work-from-home lifestyle, it may be coming to an end for some of us.

As of February 28, teleworking will no longer be mandatory but will continue to be a recommendation from the Government of Quebec. Employers will decide how they want to proceed.

This Monday, places of worship and concert halls will no longer have a capacity limit, with the exception of the Bell Center and the Videotron Center.

March 14

Buckle up — March 14 will be a great day in Quebec.

During his recent press conference, Legault said that “after March 14, almost all restrictions will be lifted. We are taking a calculated risk to learn to live with the virus”.

This means that from March 14, restaurants and bars in Quebec will be able to open at full capacity, with dancing and karaoke allowed. They can also reopen at their usual hours.

Large theaters, gymnasiums, large concert halls, outdoor events and spas will all be allowed to operate at full capacity.

Places of worship and rented halls will have new rules to allow people without vaccination passports to enter. Places of worship will be allowed to have a maximum of 50 people without a vaccination passport, rented rooms will be allowed a maximum of 20 people without it. With vaccine passports, rented rooms can operate at full capacity.
