COVID-19: No more orange or red zones in Quebec starting June 14


All of Quebec will be either designated green or yellow zones starting next week as the number of new COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations remain on the downturn.

Premier François Legault credited the announcement Tuesday as sectors gradually reopen in the province.

“The situation continues to improve in Quebec and vaccination continues to go very well,” he said.

Under the plan, Montreal and Laval will be downgraded from orange alert to yellow on the colour-coded pandemic alert scale as of June 14.

The yellow alert level means private indoor gatherings are allowed, but limited to a maximum of two households.

Other regions set to turn yellow include Capitale-Nationale, Montérégie and Lanaudière.
