Last week, the province’s interim public health director, Dr. Luc Boileau said there were signs that community transmission was beginning to slow and new daily hospitalizations were on the rise.
But Boileau announced a mask mandate for indoor public spaces and public transport will remain in place until mid-May as the situation remains difficult despite promising signs.
Apart from 20 deaths on Sunday, the authorities on Saturday reported 34 deaths due to COVID-19. The province has recorded 14,866 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
