The practice of team sports with brief contacts will resume as of June 11, except in Montreal and Laval who will have to wait to switch to the yellow zone, possibly on June 7. The organization of tournaments and outdoor competitions with spectators will go on at the end of June as well.
The bars are scheduled to reopen on the same date, according to the Legault government’s plan, while indoor gatherings without masks or physical distancing for those who have received the two doses of vaccine will be allowed from June 25.
With the switch to green by June 25, day camps will be able to reopen and festivals authorized to accommodate a maximum of 2,500 people, in zones of 250 people.
