There are also changes to festival and event occupancy limits that come into effect on August 1.
Outdoor festivals in Quebec will be permitted to host a maximum of 15,000 people — 10,000 more than what was previously permitted.
Indoor events in halls and stadiums will be able to host a maximum of 7,500 people. Both outdoor festivals and shows indoors should have independent sections that fit 500 people each, with their own entrances and exits.
