The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) de l’Outaouais issued a press release to confirm that the special emergency measures will be lifted as of Monday, May 17, for the MRC Pontiac, Gatineau and the MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais. The measures of the maximum warning level (red) will therefore be applied there, in particular the opening of secondary schools, in alternation in class for the 3rd, 4th and 5th secondary.

“The lifting of measures for these three sectors of the region is possible since the situation has improved in terms of the number of cases, outbreaks and hospitalizations related to Covid-19. However, we urge the population to exercise great caution because the situation could quickly deteriorate if health measures are relaxed. The application of health measures remains the best way to protect yourself while the vaccination coverage of the population is constantly improving. In this sense and if it has not already been done, we strongly invite the adult population to make an appointment to be vaccinated,”said the CISSS de l’Outaouais.

As a reminder, here are some measures that apply to the maximum alert level (red zone):

- Curfew between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next day

- Gatherings in homes and private land prohibited

- Dining rooms in closed restaurants (Delivery and take-out meals only)

- Indoors, non-contact activities carried out solo, in pairs or with occupants of the same private residence are only permitted in swimming pools, skating rinks and places to play tennis and badminton for the practice of these sports only (site supervision compulsory). Individual lessons or for occupants of the same residence are permitted. The physical training rooms (gyms) are closed.

- Outside, leisure or sports activities can be practiced by occupants of the same private residence or by a group limited to 8 people. A person can be added to provide supervision or a course. Physical distancing is required between people of different residences.

- Places of worship are limited to 25 people.

- The cinemas are open with a maximum of 250 people per room and wearing a mask is compulsory.
