COVID-19: Canada Responds

Quebec to Fine Individuals Who Ignore Mask Guidelines – September 10, 2020

In Quebec City, Quebec Premier François Legault provides an update on the province’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. He announces that as of September 12, Quebecers who ignore public health rules for wearing masks inside public space and on public transit will be fined. While enforcement will apply across the entire province, authorities will focus on four regions classified as “yellow” under the provincial government’s new colour-coded COVID-19 alert system: Quebec City, Outaouais, Laval, and L’Estrie. The premier is joined by Christian Dubé, Quebec’s minister of health and social services, and Dr. Horacio Arruda, the province’s director of public health.
