Quebec Is Going To Cut Social Distancing To Just 1 Metre

Quebec social distancing is about to be reduced to one metre between people from different addresses, according to a Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) announcement on July 7. 

The MSSS explained that "due to the favourable epidemiological situation and the vaccination coverage which continues to be more and more significant, new relaxations will come into force."

As per the new measures: "the distance to be respected between people from different residences will be lowered from 2 meters to 1 meter, both outside and inside."

In addition, retail stores will no longer be required to cap the number of people allowed inside. 

Wearing a face mask will still be mandatory in enclosed public places, however. 

The MSSS added that "for singing activities and for high-intensity exercise in gyms, the 2 meter distance must be maintained."

These new measures will come into effect on Monday, July 12, 2021.
