COVID-19 in Quebec: Everything you need to know on Wednesday, March 24 - By Lela S.
1. Today, Quebec reported 956 new cases and 4 new deaths
This means that the cases are stabilizing. This proves the measures the province has put in place are working. However, to prevent a third wave from happening, people need to continue following the rules.
2. 26,040 doses of vaccine were administered on Monday for a total of 993,102 since Dec. 14.
Montrealers over the age of 60 can now register for a shot — and that includes the premier. Legault said he will get his shot Friday in Montreal.
3. Students in Secondary 3, 4, and 5 are now going to real school full-time
As of Monday, Secondary 3, 4 and 5 students who live in red zones will be able to attend school in-person full time. Right now, they alternate daily between being at school and online learning. Apparently, there are higher risks of problems with staying at home, failing school and mental health compared to the risk of outbreaks.
