Legault Rated Quebec Regions From Good To Stable To Bad Based On Current COVID-19 Cases

In a press conference on November 10, Premier François Legault rated Quebec regions based on current COVID-19 cases using three categories: good, stable and not good.  

The three regions in Quebec with COVID-19 situations that Legault classified as "very good" are: Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord and Bas-Saint-Laurent. 

Legault gave the rating of "stable" to Montreal and other Quebec regions, including Laval, Laurentides, and Outaouais. 

Capitale-Nationale, Chaudière-Appalaches, Estrie, Montérégie and Nord-du-Québec also fell into the middle ground of Legault's rating system.

The five regions where Legault said "things are not going well" and which have problems that are "worrisome" are: Centre-du-Québec, Gaspésie, Lanaudière, Mauricie and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean.

Dubé explained the rise in cases in the worse Quebec regions is due to community transmission.

"It's in regions of Quebec that weren't often tested in the first wave. And in that sense, I think it's quite normal, people think they're not vulnerable," said Dubé.

"When we think we’re not vulnerable, we let our guard down a bit. Now that we have confirmation that community transmission is there, we need to double down our efforts."
