Montreal Just Released The New COVID-19 Case Counts For Each Borough

This week marked five months since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 an official pandemic. Within, that time, we've seen some highs and lows in terms of cases, especially here in Montreal. As of 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 13, Montreal's COVID-19 case count has officially reached 29,364.

As the province continues to reopen, more and more changes come to rules and regulations as we enter the "new normal." The most significant being the mandated wearing of facial coverings in all indoor, public places.
