We're going in the right direction, but we have to be extremely careful.

Premier François Legault

"We have a worry," Legault said on Tuesday.

"At this moment, we're not excluding for that week [...] adding additional measures."

He specifically called on parents to avoid gathering with other families or allowing people aged 65 and over to babysit children.

Asked specifically if Quebec is considering checkpoints to limit travel between regions or even between the neighbouring provinces during the break, Guilbault would not say, only confirming that such considerations and discussions with other provinces are currently ongoing.

"Several things are under study."
