Christian Dube, Quebec’s health minister, is urging locals to who have been fully immunized to seek proof of inoculation if they do not have one yet.
Through a tweet early Monday morning, Minister Dube shared information on how to get validation from the government.
In the meantime, three areas in Quebec will shift to the green zone of the province’s pandemic response strategy: Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Maurice-Center-du-Quebec, and Bas-Saint-Laurent.
The change will ease measures, including the limits currently in place on people gathering at home. Now people can host up to 10 persons from different three homes. Under the yellow zone, only two homes will be allowed.
These changes come at a time when the infection rate in Quebec has declined significantly. Just today alone, Quebec has reported 103 cases.
Since April, infection rates have been declining with the daily caseloads averaging 1500.
Health records show that currently, there are 170 persons in hospital with COVID-19, a decline by 8 from the previous estimate. Those in Intensive care remain 39.
