Easing of health measures related to COVID-19 pandemic in Quebec

November 3, 2021

Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, announced further easing of health measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic effective November 15

  • End of the obligation to keep a register of visitors in restaurants and bars.
  • End of the recommendation to work from home. Employers will be free to implement their face-to-face return policy, but mixed formulas that allow for the continuation of teleworking are recommended.
  • Non-essential gatherings, such as congresses, conferences, performances, festivals and events, still require the presentation of a vaccination passport, but distancing will no longer be necessary and there will be no capacity limits. However, a face cover remains mandatory indoors, except when drinking and eating.
  • Recall: there is no longer a maximum capacity to respect in store. However, it is necessary to ensure a distance of 1 meter at all times between the different bubbles. As such, some crowd control may continue to be necessary during high traffic periods.
