    Quebec Premier François Legault is defending his plan for December, but is warning that holiday parties could be off the table if the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic gains steam in the province. Legault’s announcement comes as 1,464 new cases of COVID-19 were reported Thursday—the highest number of daily infections to date. The province also recorded 32 additional deaths, including eight in the past day. “If our numbers increase too much, we won’t allow gatherings,” he said, adding the pandemic must be kept under control. The four-day period next month where Quebecers are allowed to see one another for a maximum of two gatherings has sparked questions. In return, those who do allow holiday events are asked to quarantine for a week before and after. The other option, Legault said, was to prohibit gatherings altogether during the holiday season when Quebecers are already dealing with restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19.
