    Quebec Premier François Legault urged Quebecers on Tuesday to refrain from travelling outside the country and province and to limit gatherings to only two during the holiday season to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Legault also said those who cannot isolate for a week before the four-day period when gatherings are permitted in December to skip them altogether. “If you cannot be in quarantine a week before, it’s better to not go to a Christmas dinner,” he said Tuesday. The updated restrictions come after the province announced last week that it will allow Quebecers to hold events with a maximum of 10 people from Dec. 24 to 27. In exchange, people who do participate in gatherings are asked to quarantine the week before and the week after that period. Quebec is reporting 1,124 new infections and 45 additional deaths Tuesday linked to the second wave of the pandemic.
