Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Quebec extends restrictions in coronavirus red zones for another 4 weeks | FULL” – below is their description.
Quebec Premier François Legault announced Monday that the province would extend restrictions in coronavirus red zones for another four weeks until Nov. 23. A partial 28-day lockdown in the province’s two largest cities, Montreal and Quebec City, was set to end on Oct.28. Legault said, however, that while efforts to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus have paid off in the last three weeks, now is not the time to slack off. “We’ve stabilized the numbers of new cases, it shows that we’re able to stop the virus when we all do our part,” he said. “But 1,000 new cases per day is too much… we have to bring that down.” In designated red zones gyms, bars and entertainment venues are closed, while restaurants are allowed to provide take out or delivery. Most indoor and outdoor gatherings outside work settings are also banned. Legault said that financial aid for affected businesses will continue until Nov. 23.
