This Is Montreal's Official Case Count By Borough Right Now

Legault has admitted that the situation in Montreal remains “worrisome.” Though the gradual reopening of Quebec has already begun outside the Montreal area, officials are increasingly making a distinction between the regions and the metropolis, where the outbreak continues to devastate some communities. While infections were initially concentrated in the center and west of the island, the focus of municipal and provincial leaders is now on the boroughs in the north and east.

As of May 12, seven boroughs count over 1,000 total cases: Ahuntsic–Cartierville (1,671), Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (1,633), Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (1,591), Montréal-Nord (1,857), Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles (1,561), Rosemont–La Petite Patrie (1,126), and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension (1,435).

With 2,204.6 cases per 100,000 residents, Montréal-Nord has the highest infection rate on the island.

As a result of the situation in the city, Premier Francois Legault has twice postponed the date for the beginning of deconfinement in the metropolitan community (CMM), first to May 18 and now to May 25.

He has repeatedly made clear that he’s willing to further postpone the date unless the state of the city and surrounding suburbs improves.

And though he has rebuked fears that Montrealers could infect populations elsewhere in the province, he admitted on May 11 that he asks National Public Health Director Dr. Arruda “every day if it’s a good idea to confine” the region.

“For the moment,” Legault said, the answer is “no.”

Note that data for May 12 is incomplete.

Meanwhile, Quebec is moving ahead with plans to resume some sporting and leisure activities.

As of May 20, individual and no-contact outdoor sports will be allowed to take place throughout the province, including the CMM. National parks will also partially reopen.

But non-essential travel between regions is still discouraged. So there will be no weekend hiking trips just yet.

Stay tuned for more news.
