*** COVID-19 Pandemic – Preventive measures for all Quebec municipalities
“As our Premier mentioned at his press briefing on March 15, 2020, it is essential that we put all the odds on our side in order to curb and slow down as much as possible the contagion caused by the coronavirus. By restricting access to public places, such as libraries, arenas, swimming pools, buildings with meeting rooms or convention centers, municipal organizations will make an important contribution to the efforts made by the government and the citizens of Québec. That is why I am asking for their cooperation today to put this preventive measure in place now.”
Mrs Andrée Laforest, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
