Legault wrote that in the face of questions, the requirement to wear a mask outside will only apply to "situations where it may be difficult to respect the two-metre distance" with members of different households.
Legault also said that couples who maintain an "intimate relationship" who do not live at the same address are also no longer expected to wear a mask when gathering outdoors.
"In a situation where one is certain to always stay more than two meters away, such as tennis or golf, or sitting in a park, it is not necessary to wear the mask," Legault wrote. "The same thing happens when two people walk together, but at a safe distance."
In a situation where two-metre social distancing is possible outdoors, gatherers are not required to wear masks, he wrote.

"As of Friday, July 2, the 3,500-person limit for outdoor festivals and events will be raised to 5,000 people," the ministry said.
People from different households will still have to be seated at least 1.5 metres away from each other in outdoor theatres and stadiums.
However, "no special authorization will be granted to the Bell Centre in order to accommodate more people during the next Canadiens games," the ministry continued, adding that "this decision was made in order to limit the risk of spreading the disease."
The 3,500-person capacity limit (250 people per section) will therefore stay in place.
