Due to the improved epidemiological situation, the Outaouais region will go to the alert level (orange) as of May 31, at 00:01.

Measures in effect in the orange zone include:

- The return to full-time classes for students in Secondary 3, 4 and 5;

- Re-opening of restaurants (maximum of two people per table, accompanied, if applicable, by their minor children, or occupants of the same private residence per table);

- A maximum of 100 persons in places of worship (except for weddings and funerals which are limited to 25 persons).

As a reminder, as of May 28, relief will apply in all regions of Quebec:

- Curfew will be lifted;

- Gatherings will be allowed on private outdoor properties (maximum of 8 people from different residences or occupants of 2 residences, with distance);

- The outdoor terraces of restaurants will again be open to customers (in red and orange zones: two people with minor children or occupants of the same residence; in yellow zones, occupants of two residences);

- Travel between regions will be permitted;

- Large halls and outdoor stadiums will be able to accommodate a maximum of 2,500 people in separate 250-person zones with mandatory reservations, as well as separate entrances, exits and washroom facilities for each zone.

Other measures, such as distancing and masking, must also be observed. Despite the progress of the vaccination, it is important to continue to strictly respect the sanitary measures in effect until the population is sufficiently immunized. We would like to remind the population to respect the sanitary measures in effect as the warm season has already begun. We thank the population for their vigilance and prudence in all their activities.
