Apr 03, 2022

The Quebec government will announce its decision regarding the future of indoor masking rules for public spaces on Tuesday, according to Radio-Canada.

During an interview on Sunday, Quebec’s interim public health director Dr. Luc Boileau said the government is considering extending mask mandates in the province, which were expected to be lifted April 15.

“We’re seriously considering if it wouldn’t be an opportune time to push the end of mask mandates to a later date because of the seriousness of this wave,” Boileau said.

“We certainly expect to provide a recommendation in that direction.”

According to Radio Canada, Quebec Public Health will make its recommendation to the government on Monday, with a decision being made public the following day.

Boileau said the sixth wave of infections has grown in severity since its presence in the province was confirmed by Quebec’s public health institute (INSPQ) earlier this week.
