6 Montreal Boroughs Currently Have More Than 2,000 COVID-19 Cases

As things feel like they may be getting back to some sense of normal, Montreal's daily COVID-19 counts remind us that there is, in fact, still a global pandemic. The latest numbers show that the region of Montreal is currently sitting at 27,438 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 3,413 COVID-19-related deaths. This accounts for nearly half of the cases in the province, which has counted 55,997 confirmed cases, meaning Quebec is still the province with the highest amount of cases in the country.

This follows nearly two weeks of the province reopening everything, except for festivals, sleepaway camps and combat sports.

Despite the go-ahead from the government, some businesses have decided to remain closed for a variety of reasons.

The wearing of face masks continues to be highly recommended. Montrealers and Canadians are encouraged to check out resources from the government on the safest ways to wear a mask.

The city is also in its "progressive reopening" phase, slowly resuming municipal service.

As expected, not all boroughs are progressing at the same rate.

Currently, Montréal-Nord remains the city's borough with the most number of cases.

Governments at all levels are reminding people to keep practicing social distancing, wearing masks and washing their hands.
