        MONTREAL -- Quebec's premier is repeating a refrain by the health minister in recent days as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to worry officials.

        "My message is clear and simple today. Please stay home," said Francois Legault in an afternoon press briefing. "You can go to school or to work but otherwise, please stay home."

        Quebec health authorities reported 900 new cases of COVID-19 in the province on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic to 81,914.

        About a quarter of Quebecers will not completely adhere to stay-at-home orders: survey

        Wednesday's update is the first time the province has reported fewer than 1,000 cases of the diseases in a week.

        The province is also reporting seven more deaths linked to the disease. One of them took place in the past 24 hours, four are from between Sept. 30 and Oct. 5 and two are from an unknown date, for a total of 5,906 since the start of the pandemic.

        Two of the latest deaths took place in Bas Saint Laurent, two in Quebec City, two in Gaspe and one Chaudiere-Appalaches.

        As of Wednesday, there are 409 people receiving care for COVID-19 in Quebec hospitals, which is an increase in 12 from the number reported on Tuesday. Of them, 62 are in the intensive care ward, which is five less than the number reported 24 hours earlier...

              MONTREAL -- Quebec reported another drop in new COVID-19 cases on Monday, with 843 new cases of the virus.

              However, the province's deaths jumped by 12 after several deaths from last week were counted belatedly.

              The new numbers bring Quebec to a total count of people infected over the course of the pandemic to 86,976, and its total deaths to 5,965.

                Quebec is expanding its red zone designation to the Montérégie, Centre-du-Québec and Capitale-Nationale areas as the novel coronavirus takes hold in different regions, the province’s premier announced Tuesday.

                François Legault said the tightened restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19 will come into effect for those areas on Friday. The highest alert level is already in place in the province’s largest cities, including Montreal.

                “There’s no magic recipe,” he told reporters in Montreal. “We have to reduce our contacts.”

                    The previous high mark was Oct. 2, when 1,161 people tested positive.

                    Quebec originally reported 1,364 new cases Oct. 6, but the provincial public health insitute retroactively adjusted that number to 997.

                        Quebec is reporting an increase of 877 novel coronavirus infections and an uptick in hospitalizations on Tuesday.

                        However, Quebec’s Health Ministry noted that while there are more than 800 new infections, 90 cases have been retracted from the total — bringing the caseload to 95,216.

                        “The 90 cases will be withdrawn gradually depending on the date the cases have been confirmed,” the Health Ministry said in a statement.

                        The province continues to have the highest tally of cases in Canada, which has topped 200,000 infections as of this week.

                            MONTREAL -- As Quebec continues to report about 1,000 new cases of COVID-19 per day, Quebecers who are able to work from home should be working from home, the provincial government says.

                            Premier Francois Legault made the announcement at a news conference on Thursday alongside Health Minister Christian Dube and public health director Dr. Horacio Arruda.

                            "The Chambre de commerce de Montreal will not like me for saying this," Legault said, just two hours after Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante announced measures to help businesses in the city centre survive the pandemic. Before the second wave of the pandemic hit, Plante asked Montrealers to head back to their downtown offices.

                            “We need more people to work from home because (work is) a place where there are infections," Legault said. "All those who can work from home should.”

                            Legault stressed that the state of the COVID-19 pandemic remains worrisome in the province as Thursday's update saw 20 more people die from the disease.

                            "And when we say 20 deaths, these are not just statistics, these are real people," he said. “...All those who criticize or want to criticize the measures – well think about these 20 people who have died."...
