    Quebec is extending emergency measures for three regions as the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to gain steam in the province.

    Premier François Legault announced the move Tuesday, saying schools and non-essential businesses will remain closed in the Quebec City, Outaouais and Chaudière-Appalaches areas until April 25.

    Legault went on to say that “with the variant, no area is immune” but the province will not tighten restrictions in Montreal and the surrounding areas — for now.

    He also addressed young Quebecers who are fed up with public health orders following two nights of anti-curfew protests in Montreal. The province rolled back curfew to 8 p.m. in the city over the weekend to limit the spread of the virus.
