COVID-19: Quebec premier declares they’re ‘heading in the right direction’

Quebec is “heading in the right direction” as vaccination opens up and the number of new COVID-19 cases fall, the province’s premier said Tuesday.

François Legault said the upcoming months are also looking more promising compared to last summer.

“We are getting through the third wave, but we still have to be careful,” he told reporters in Quebec City.

The province is also lifting emergency restrictions in the Outaouais region as hospitalizations and cases related to the pandemic drop.

Legault said that for the most part, the situation is improving in most of Quebec, with a few exceptions such as parts of the Eastern Townships and Chaudière-Appalaches.

Yet, the government is not lifting more measures in the province for now. Legault says officials are working with public health to work on a reopening plan.

More to come.
