This is what Prime Minister François Legault said on Monday when asked about information first reported by Radio-Canada.
“There are several hypotheses that are looked at [mais] obviously, it is too early to decide the number of people. Will it be five? Will it be ten? […] This is part of the discussions we have with public health and I can guarantee you that there is no decision that has been made, ”he explained.
The Prime Minister offered the same answer regarding the possibility that schools will be closed from December 11 to January 11, as mentioned by Radio-Canada.
“Is schools better to close them earlier or later? It is too early to answer these questions, ”said the CAQ leader.
As to whether announcements on these issues could be made this week, François Legault remained cautious.
“The situation [de la pandémie au Québec], as you know, has changed a lot in the last few weeks. We will be monitoring the situation in the coming days and then when we have the best possible picture of what is to come around December 25, well we will let you know, “he concluded.
