"As elsewhere in the world, the recent increase in the number of cases is worrying."

Quebec To Announce New COVID-19 Measures

In an August 4 tweet, Premier François Legault said the province is set to announce new COVID-19 measures "in the coming days" as COVID-19 cases in Quebec rise in certain regions.

On Tuesday, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé tweeted that the COVID-19 situation in Quebec's Mauricie region was "worrying," particularly among unvaccinated and partially-vaccinated 18- to 30-year-olds, as cases in Mauricie–Centre-du-Québec jumped from 17 to 146 between July 22 and August 2.

"As elsewhere in the world, the recent increase in the number of cases is worrying," Legault tweeted.

"We will be announcing new measures in the coming days."

On August 4, the province reported a total of 184 new cases of COVID-19 in Quebec.
