However, Quebec reported that hospitalizations in the province remained stable on November 14 for the second consecutive day.

The previous daily record for COVID-19 cases in Quebec was on November 7, at 1,397 new cases.

The Quebec region with the highest reported number of new cases on November 14 was Montreal, at 341 new cases.

New data published by the province on its COVID-19 update page shows that almost 50% of the province's outbreaks are happening in workplaces, while 29% are happening in schools.

An outbreak is defined by at least two confirmed cases, in less than 14 days, that cannot be explained by a link outside the environment, CIUSSS told MTL Blog in September.
