  • 4 people or 2 “bubbles” per table
  • Closing at midnight (end of food and beverage sales at 11 pm)

Vaccination passport

  • The Ministerial Order requiring retailers over 1,500 m2 (with the exception of grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations) to request proof of vaccination is now available.
  • The end of this obligation has not been determined, but RCC continues its efforts to ensure that this measure is in place for as short a period as possible.

If you have any questions, please contact Michel Rochette, President of RCC-Quebec, at mrochette@cccd-rcc.org, or Francis Mailly, RCC’s Director of Government Relations for Quebec, at fmailly@cccd-rcc.org.
