During Thursdays press conference, the Premier of Quebec François Legault said police will begin handing out fines to anyone who isn’t wearing a mask, without a valid reason, as required by the public health guidelines. The fines will apply across the province, but according to Premier Legault, the authorities will target regions classified as “yellow” under the government’s new colour-coded COVID-19 alert system.

People will be fined if they do not wear a mask in indoor public spaces where social distancing is not possible. Fines are expected to range between $400 and $6,000.

Legault said the government is implementing these stricter penalties because of a recent spike in cases.
