We're one step closer to (somewhat) normal. A number of exciting reopenings in Quebec on Monday, June 15 mean that, in some areas of the province, people can start going out to restaurants and friends' places again. Montrealers will have to wait a bit longer for those things, but city residents do finally get to schedule a professional haircut and get their nails done.\nThis is just the latest major reopening step in a series that will let Quebecers have at least a bit of fun this summer.\nAt the end of May and beginning of June, museums, some library services, campsites, and Sépaq parks also began to open.\nDrive-in theatres began showing movies again, too, and have become a bit of a trend.\nNew theatres have begun popping up across the province to allow people to get out while practicing social distancing.\nThere's even a massive new drive-in venue planned for Montreal Island.\nThere are still some openings the government hasn't announced, however.\nWe're still waiting for the date when bars and gyms can open their doors. In the meantime, we'll have to be happy with jogs along the Lachine Canal and picnics in the park.\nBut we do have a lot to look forward to in the week of June 15.\nHere's a breakdown of what to expect.\nRestaurants Outside The Montreal Area, Joliette & L'Épiphanie\nRestaurants will finally open their doors to the public outside of the Montreal metropolitan community (CMM), the Joliette MRC, and L'Épiphanie for the first time since March.\nThis includes mall food courts.\nBut there will be some major changes to the experience of dining out.\nDiners will still have to stay two metres away from other people.\nRestaurants are required to post signage at their entrances and floor markings in high traffic areas to remind customers of this rule.\n"Wherever possible," according to the CNESST, restaurants will create "a one-way traffic flow" to "prevent people from passing each other."\n"Physical barriers (solid partitions that can be easily disinfected)," like Plexiglass, will be in place "to separate workers from customers at checkouts, in front of open kitchens," and "at the reception desk."\nRestaurants aren't scheduled to open in Montreal et al. until June 22.\nSmall Indoor Gatherings Outside The Montreal Area, Joliette & L'Épiphanie\nPeople outside these areas will be able to have a few friends over to their homes as of Monday.\nThese gatherings can have a maximum of 10 people from three different households.\n"Obviously," the government writes on its website, "a distance of at least two metres must be kept between those people who are not from the same household."\nBONNE NOUVELLE : Nous avons obtenu précision de la santé publique : les rassemblements intérieurs seront permis dans les hébergements touristiques ayant actuellement le droit d'opérer.
