7 Montreal Boroughs Currently Have Over 1,000 Cases Each

In the latest updates about COVID-19 in Montreal, we discover that, as of May 10, the region now has 19,197 confirmed cases, which makes up over half of the province's 37,721 cases. During a press conference on May 9, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau admitted that he is worried about Montrealers right now. In looking at the case count in every one of the city's boroughs, it shows that seven of them have over 1,000 cases each.

The hardest hit boroughs include Ahuntsic–Cartierville, Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montréal-Nord, Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles, Rosemont–La Petite Patrie, and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.

We continue to be asked not to travel within different regions in Quebec, as requested by the provincial government, and within Montreal, as asked by Mayor Valérie Plante

The city's state of emergency has been renewed again until May 11, which gives police officers "exceptional powers" to enforce social distancing measures.

Various new measures are being taken to help properly prepare the city for a safe deconfinement, including heightened testing in affected areas, more pedestrian and biker only streets, and recommending the wearing of face masks in places like public transportation.

Below is the most recent case count per Montreal borough as of May 10 at 1:30 p.m.

As a way to provide more testing, new mobile clinics, which will take the form of STM buses, will be going to the most affected areas in the city during the upcoming weeks.

In order to help stop the spread of COVID-19, Mayor Valérie Plante has asked all Montrealers to start wearing face masks in places where the two-metre distance cannot be respected. 

And, of course, to continue practicing all other protective guidelines released by officials, such as hand-washing and avoiding touching your face.

In Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, a pilot project is starting this summer that will create nine "superblocks" around the borough, which are made to promote play and help support local businesses in the area.

Similarly, the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough has created three additional "family-friendly active" streets that will help locals practice social distancing while enjoying the nice weather this summer.

You can expect more Montreal boroughs to be coming up with these sorts of initiatives to keep their residents safe in the near future!
