Dubé Suggested Quebec Wouldn't Fully Lock Down Again If Cases Go Up After The Summer
Is Quebec past its last full lockdown? At a press conference Monday, Health Minister Christian Dubé suggested that the government wouldn't opt for widespread closures in the event of an increase in cases in the fall.
But he did raise the possibility of limiting some services to people who had received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

"People have to understand [...] we're going to have to make choices as a society" if cases increase in September, he said.
"We couldn't reconfine people after what we've just lived for 15, 16 months."
"There are non-essential services that are going to have to be available to those who have two doses."
The minister encouraged Quebecers to get their vaccine doses before the September return to school.
