The wearing of a face cover will be compulsory in several public spaces closed from July 18

As of Saturday, July 18, people 12 and over must wear a mask or face cover in several closed public spaces, including retail businesses, throughout Quebec. The Premier of Québec, François Legault, made the announcement on Monday, July 13, accompanied by the Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, the Minister responsible for the City, Chantal Rouleau, as well as the National Director of public health, Dr Horacio Arruda.

Thus, the public will be prohibited from accessing and moving around the following places without wearing a face covering:
Retail businesses;
Service companies (eg pharmacies);
The private practices of professionals;
The places where municipal or government services are offered;
Personal care companies (e.g. hairdressers, beauty care);
Shopping centers ;
Places of worship;
Cinemas, concert halls, etc.
The places used to host events, such as congresses and conferences;
All common areas of establishments, in particular those of office buildings (e.g. entrance halls, elevators and corridors);
Schools (except primary and secondary schools), educational colleges and universities;
Public transport.

Remember, however, that wearing a mask is strongly discouraged for children under 2 years of age. For children 2 to 12 years old, wearing a face cover is highly recommended, but not mandatory, inside these places.
As of July 18, a citizen who chooses not to comply with this new directive will not be able to access the establishment concerned. However, the government wants the cooperation of citizens and merchants, who have responded very well to the imposition of measures by public health authorities since the start of the pandemic.
The Prime Minister also reiterated during his press briefing that private gatherings, whether inside or outside, must always be limited to a maximum of 10 people. "Homeowners who allow gatherings of more than 10 people are subject to fines. It is not true that we are going to put all of Quebec at risk because of a few parties, "he said.
