Schools, CEGEPs, universities and daycare services in Quebec will be closed for a period of two weeks starting next Monday.

Premier of Quebec François Legault, made the announcement Friday at a media debrief. At this time, 17 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Quebec, two of which are currently hospitalized.

The Hauts-Bois-de-l’Outaouais School Board indicated that schools and adult general education centers will be closed from March 16th to March 27th. This announcement also concerns all teaching staff. Same thing with Western Quebec.

Return to class should therefore take place on Monday, March 30th, unless otherwise indicated.

Health Minister Danielle McCann announced that fifteen new screening centers will be deployed across Quebec in the coming days, including in Outaouais.

The CISSS de l’Outaouais indicated that the clinic will be located at 135, boulevard St-Raymond, in Gatineau (Hull sector), and will open on Saturday. Users must contact 1-877-644-4545 to obtain an appointment to the clinic. The CISSS de l’Outaouais plans to conduct up to 400 screening tests per week. They also do not exclude adding additional centers in the various sectors of the Outaouais if needed.

For questions related to the virus, the government is asking to call 1-877-644-4545 rather than 811.

Measures announced by the Premier of Quebec, François Legault:
- Self-isolation for 14 days for anyone who, as of March 12th, 2020, returns from abroad
- Mandatory isolation for 14 days for all public service employees and health care, education and daycare workers, both private and public, who, as of March 12th, 2020, return from abroad
- The cancellation, as of March 12th, 2020 and for 30 days, of indoor gatherings of more than 250 people or unnecessary gatherings.
- The closing of all childcare services (childcare centres, subsidized and non-subsidized childcare services, home childcare services and unregulated childcare services) and the education network (elementary and secondary schools, training centres, private schools, CEGEPs, colleges and universities) from Monday, March 16 to Friday, March 27th. (However, measures will be implemented to continue to offer childcare services to parents who work in the health network and in essential services)
- Access to CHSLDs will be restricted by security officers, who will verify the origin of visitors and require hand washing.
