All Of Quebec Will Be A Green Zone Starting Next Week

All regions in Quebec, including Montreal, will be a green zone as of June 28, Premier François Legault announced at a press conference on Tuesday.

As of Monday, we'll be able to have more people at restaurants and see more of our friends in private gatherings, among other relaxed measures.

What can I do in the green zone? 

"From next Friday, those who receive their two doses will be allowed to gather without a mask," the premier confirmed.

Festivals will be able to welcome up to 3,500 people.

Private indoor gatherings of up to 10 people will be allowed and outdoor gatherings of up to 20 people will be allowed.

"Monday, we'll go from small parties to medium parties!" Legault said.

For bars and restaurants, 20 people per table can be seated on an outdoor terrasse starting on June 28. Inside, the limit is 10 people per table.

You must remain seated at all times. Singing and dancing are still prohibited.

How are vaccinations going in Quebec?

The news of the move to the green zone comes as the number of new infections continues to decrease.

On June 22, Quebec recorded fewer than 100 new COVID-19 cases.

A total of 7,491,684 vaccine doses have gone to Quebecers as of the same date.

Legault underlined that getting Quebecers their second doses will be the "big mission" for the summer.

He noted, however, that "we still have work to do to reach our vaccine target for those under 40."

He concluded with a call for Quebecers "to get vaccinated as soon as possible, especially those in Montreal and Laval."

Legault Elaborated On The Quebec Tax For The Unvaccinated

The 600,000 unvaccinated people will receive a call from the government.

Premier François Legault recently announced that unvaccinated Quebecers are going to be charged a "significant" fee if they refuse to get at least their first dose in the next few weeks unless they have a medical reason not to.

On Sunday, January 16, Legault appeared on the Quebec TV show on Tout le monde en parle to discuss the new "health contribution" that non-vaccinated adults will be required to pay.

Among the Quebecers polled, 46% believed that health care is the most pressing issue in the upcoming election and 53% said the current prime minister "has performed well on pandemic management."
