Last Sunday, the Quebec government announced changes in the color levels for some regions. Note that we have been advised that these changes will lead to an increase in public health inspections, possibly carried out by police forces, to ensure the presence of adequate and / or reinforced health measures (number of people in stores allowing social distancing, management of bottlenecks, etc.).
