Legault mentioned that 881 classes in schools that are currently closed.

The premier continued to tell the population that the problem of COVID-19 in schools lies more with older students, who are apparently more likely to transmit the virus.

This is the reason behind the government's new rule for students in grade 9 in schools that find themselves in red zones.

So, as of next week, grade 9 students will have alternating school days, which consist of one day online and one psychically in school.
