While Legault is still concerned about the situation in Quebec hospitals, he said a "small deconfinement" was now possible, "but we have to do it very gradually."
These are the only changes we're able to make in light of the situation in hospitals.

Legault also noted that the gradual return of students in CEGEPs and universities across the province will soon be authorized.
The curfew will remain in place, but six regions will see it pushed back to 9:30 p.m.: Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Abitibi–Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord and Nord-du-Québec.
These regions will also see their restaurants reopen.
Legault noted that any further reopenings or deconfinement would be "almost disrespectful" to hospital staff.
