Legault Clarified How Much You Can Actually See Loved Ones During The 4 Days In December
Turns out we don't have as much freedom as we thought during these four days...
As many of us have heard by now,and his government announced a plan for the last Thursday.
This plan permits families to gather between December 24, 25, 26 and 27, with a maximum of 10 people at once.
But, the tricky part here, which wasn't so clear before today's conference, is that out of these four days, Quebecers are only meant to leave their house for two of them.
There are four possible days [to see your family], but we only want two to be used.
Premier François Legault
Such is what Legault is deeming a "moral contract" that Quebecers must follow if they want to see their family over the holidays.
The other aspect of this social contract is that you should quarantine for the week prior to your holiday meal, as well as the week after.
The premier pointed out that such may not be possible, and added: "If you're not able to quarantine a week before, it's better not to go to the Christmas dinner."
So, to reiterate, you're only supposed to see family (or anyone else outside of your home) for two out of the four days that the Quebec government has set aside for allowing gatherings of a maximum of 10 people in December.
On a lighter note, the premier mentioned that we "finally see a light at the end of the tunnel," and "our challenge [now] is to keep morale up for the remaining months."
