On May 31, la Capitale-Nationale, Montérégie, Laurentides, Lanaudière, and Outaouais will all go from red zone to orange zone. As for Montreal and Laval, Legault said after a discussion with health officials, they've decided to leave both in red zone for "at least another week."

In orange zones, indoor dining at restaurants is permitted! There are just a few rules.

The government's official website explains that "A maximum of 2 adults from a different address sitting at the same table, may be accompanied by their children under the age of 18. Occupants of the same private residence may sit together at the same table. Restaurant customers are prohibited from changing tables as long as they are in the establishment."
