The last thing I want to close is schools.
Premier François Legault
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.
