Vaccine passport to be required for entry to SAQ and SQDC as of Jan. 18

The new public health measure will be extended to other non-essential businesses in the coming weeks.

In a press conference this morning, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that the vaccine passport will be required for entry to SAQ and SQDC branches across the province as of Jan. 18. Dubé said that this measure will be extended to other non-essential businesses in the coming weeks, suggesting that the province is considering requiring proof of vaccination in the “personal care” industry.

This news comes as pandemic numbers in Quebec continue to break records. Today it was announced that 415 people were admitted to hospital in the province yesterday. Dubé said projections show that hospitalizations could soon reach 3,000 at a time when the province’s healthcare system is down 20,000 workers.
