The indoor facilities as well as the public and private beaches will be accessible from June 22, including the fitness centers, arenas and gymnasiums used for gymnastics, which will once again be able to accommodate athletes.

The Minister for Education and Minister responsible for the Status of Women, Isabelle Charest, announced this new phase of resumption of sports activities Wednesday morning in a press briefing.

Group sports matches may also resume, in accordance with the directives of the Directorate General of Public Health. In addition, as of this day, the training of beach lifeguards can begin. In this regard, the Minister indicated that accidental and sporadic contact will be tolerated.

The national director of public health, Dr. Horacio Arruda, said that in indoor installations, common areas should be given special attention.

Resumption of activity guides will also be sent by the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST).
