The new occupancy limit will also apply to drive-in theatres in Quebec green zones, as well as to major events and festivals, which will be permitted to resume outdoors on June 25.

Except for drive-ins, audiences have to be divided into separate sections, each with a maximum capacity of 250 people.

Each section will have independent points of entry and exit, separate washrooms and separate food service areas.
