Montreal hopes to open terrasses on June 1

Pending public health approval.

Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante announced this morning that new funding for bars and restaurants in the city will be revealed tomorrow, and that the city hopes to open up terrasses on June 1.

We are in discussion with our health partners to plan the opening of the terrasses. The city hopes for an opening on June 1, if Public Health permits, in reduced capacity and in compliance with health rules.

In a press conference this morning, Quebec Premier François Legault said that a reopening roadmap for the province is being worked out in conjunction with public health. He suggested that it would be similar to that of Saskatchewan, which forecasts reopenings and easing of restrictions based on the percentages of vaccinated people in different age groups. In that plan, bars and restaurants reopen (max. six people per table) after 70% of the 40+ age group have received their first dose of the vaccine.

Legault noted, however, that the Quebec plan will also take into account the rate of COVID-19 infection and daily case numbers.
