Quebec Premier François Legault announced on Tuesday that the regions of Montérégie, Centre-du-Québec and Capitale-Nationale will be moving to red alert level beginning Friday amid rise in COVID-19 cases.
The province reported 815 new infections Tuesday, bringing its caseload to 87,791.
The premier urged Quebecers to remain vigilant although the spread of the virus is slowing
“There is no magic recipe,” he said during a press conference, alongside Health Minister Christian Dube and Director of Public Health Dr. Horacio Arruda.
Legault said the decision to move the three regions into red alert level was for three main reasons: saving lives, keep children in schools and saving the health system.
