COVID-19 Report - Thu, Nov 19, 2020

By Felicia

Today, Quebec has reported 1 179 new cases of COVID-19 and 35 more deaths. This is NOT a good sign. The new daily cases are slowly inching forward. We’ve got to stop this.

There are now 652 people in hospital, an increase of 14. This includes the 100 people in intensive care.

Quebecers should know later today what gatherings will be allowed during the holiday season, and whether or not the winter break for schools will be extended.

Sources tell CookyLela News that Premier François Legault is considering the pros and cons of two sets of guidelines, before announcing his decision later today at a scheduled press conference at 5 pm.

The province could allow gatherings for a few days around Christmas, with a maximum of 10 people, with no limit on the number of households they can come from.

The government is also considering allowing those same gatherings for a few days around New Year's Day as well.

Under that scenario, the winter break for schools would be extended by a week in an effort to prevent to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The premier will speak at 5 p.m. He will be accompanied by Health Minister Christian Dubé, Public Health Director Dr. Horacio Arruda and Education Minister Jean-François Roberge.
