Quebec eases COVID-19 restrictions in some regions | FULL

Quebec Premier François Legault said Wednesday he is maintaining restrictions in the Montreal area because public health authorities fear a novel coronavirus variant could cause rising case numbers and hospitalizations in the region.

However, residents of Quebec City and several other parts of the province will be able to eat in restaurants and go to gyms, starting on March 8.

The capital area and four other regions will move to the lower “orange” pandemic-alert level, the premier said, adding that the nighttime curfew in those areas will be pushed back from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Greater Montreal and the neighbouring Laurentians and Lanaudière regions will not see any change, as residents will continue to be forbidden from leaving their homes after 8 p.m.
