• Public health officials have released a list of confirmed infections by Montreal borough and on-island suburb.
  • The list shows a concentration of cases in the more central areas of the island.

With almost half of the total number of COVID-19 cases in Quebec as of March 30, Montreal has been called a novel coronavirus "hotspot." But though Regional Public Health Director Dr. Mylène Drouin made clear on Sunday that there is transmission throughout the island, some communities have been harder hit than others. A new list of confirmed infections by borough and municipality shows the distribution of the virus in the region.

As of March 29, seven Montreal boroughs and one on-island suburb count more than 50 cases, with two areas counting more than 100:

Ahuntsic–Cartierville (54), Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (161), Côte-Saint-Luc (107), LaSalle (66), Outremont (56), Plateau-Mont-Royal (67), Rosemont–La Petite Patrie (80), and Ville-Marie (67) have all been particularly affected by the outbreak.

Outer boroughs and towns like Montéal-Est (1), Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue (2), and L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève (5) have far fewer cases.

On Friday, Mayor Plante declared a local state of emergency to empower authorities to better respond to the crisis and the needs of the homeless population, in particular.

On Sunday, she extended the emergency declaration by five days.

Montreal police also have additional powers to enforce social distancing measures and control the spread of the virus in the region.

SPVM officers are prepared to issue $1,000 fines to individuals who refuse to cooperate with a ban on gatherings.

They can also prepare offence reports that could be used in prosecution, Police Chief Sylvain Caron announced Monday.
