While the health district in Montergue was announced to remain at Level 4 – Highest Alert (red zone), the Public Security Directorate of Monteregie would like to remind residents of the importance of respecting health measures and instructions in place. The epidemiological situation in the region continues to slowly improve in the region, which is good news. However, the proximity of Montreal and the emergence of new variants require greater caution.
Among the measures in place in the red zone, we must remember:
- Curfew is between 8 PM and 5 AM.
- Opening a non-priority business, including personal and aesthetic care;
- Opening museums and libraries.
- Resumption of outdoor activities that bring together no more than eight people.
It should be noted that the ban on gatherings in private homes (at home and abroad) and compulsory remote work, as well as breaks related to public swimming pools, ski halls, and cinemas, continues. In the red zone, instructions regarding places of worship are also preserved, that is, a maximum of 10 people, with the exception of funerals of no more than 25 people.
In addition, some extracurricular activities will be resumed in preschools, primary and secondary schools from March 15th, in class groups only. If the epidemiological situation remains favorable, additional adjustments can be made in the coming weeks regarding performance halls, places of worship and sports.
The grafting process
At the time of writing, 42,000 appointments have been scheduled for people over 80 and caregivers aged 70 and over. Dr Julie Loosler, Director of Public Health in Montergue, calls on residents to continue to respond positively to the call for timely vaccinations.
A total of 60,319 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in Montergue so far.
“Even if vaccination is an important step in facing the epidemic and considering easing measures, compliance with health instructions is still necessary,” however, Dr. Lucler recalls.
