A new phenomenon has emerged in the province: the rapid and exponential increase of confirmed daily cases of Covid-19 variants in certain regions of Quebec which forced Prime Minister François Legault to announce, at a press briefing yesterday, to put in place emergency measures targeted in certain regions of the province to curb propagation.
The entire regions of the Capitale-Nationale, Saguenay Lac St-Jean, Outaouais, as well as those of Chaudière-Appalaches and Bas-Saint-Laurent are once again in the red zone after a brief stint in orange. The Montreal region, still in the red zone, remains under surveillance hour by hour.
The cities of Quebec, Lévis and Gatineau, now at the maximum red level, are therefore particularly targeted by these emergency measures, including the return of the curfew at 8 p.m. and the closure of schools and non-essential businesses. For these regions, it is therefore a return to the same type of pause and lock-down as in January this year, summed up the Prime Minister. These targeted measures will be in effect from Thursday, April 1, 8 p.m. until April 19th. This pause is decreed on the recommendations of public health, said François Legault. Teleworking is compulsory again. Please that the curfew is now 8pm in Montreal, Quebec, Levis and Gatineau.
Construction and renovation sites may remain open in all regions under their respective sanitary measures in place. The operational chains of the manufacturing sector (including our Laprise manufacturing plants) can continue its essential activities to honor its commitments and obligations while respecting the sanitary measures in force.
Our sales offices therefore will be working in virtual mode until further announcement. We are available according to our schedules published on our website via phone, chat, email, virtual meetings (video conferences) and social networks to support you in your project. If, however, you need to come to one of our sales offices for your home project to meet an advisor or a project manager, it is mandatory that you make an appointment. Please notre that our model homes will be closed until April 19th.
Thank you for your understanding.
We continue to be there for you!
