Laurentides and Argenteuil become yellow zone on June 14

Due to the significant reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases across the region, the Laurentides, which includes Argenteuil, will become a yellow zone as of June 14. That means a further reduction in restrictions for residents of the region.

Gatherings in private homes of people from two different homes will be permitted. In restaurants, occupants of two different residences can also share the same table.

However, Laurentides Director of Public Health Dr. Éric Goyer is urging people to stay cautious.

“This new form of freedom was very expected, and everyone is delighted, and that’s to be expected! However, it remains important to follow the recommendations issued by the Government to avoid an upsurge of the virus. It would be a shame to compromise all the efforts and sacrifices that citizens have made to date.”

Goyer urged residents to still make sure they receive their second vaccine dose.

Also, a series of new rules for outdoor and indoor dining, and sports and recreation take effect on June 11:

The opening of the outdoor terraces of the bars:

o orange level (until June 13 inclusive): two adults from different residences or occupants of a residence per table.

o yellow level (from June 14): occupants of two residences per table.

Supervised sports and recreation allowed outside in groups of 25 people:

o orange level (until June 13 inclusive): contactless practice.

o yellow level (from June 14): practical with brief contacts.
