Premier Legault is expected to announce during his upcoming Monday press conference the suspension of team sports.
Whether extracurricular or civilian, team sports are said to be banned for a period of one month in Montreal red zones, according to our information. Athletes, young and old, will have to leave their equipment in the locker room at least until the end of October in the red zone.
The Legault government is tightening the screws even more in an attempt to stem the second wave of the epidemic, which is on the rise.
Quebec passed the 1,000 new infected mark in 24 hours on Friday, a number that is nearing the top of the curve last spring.
