The COVID-19 pandemic in Quebec is part of an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a novel infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The pandemic first spread to Quebec in late February 2020, with the first confirmed case being a 41-year-old woman from Montreal who had returned from Iran on a flight from Doha, Qatar. [5] [6] [7]

Quebec declared its first Public Health Emergency in its history on March 14, 2020, [8] which was later renewed and extended multiple times through 2020 and 2021 indefinitely. [9] On March 15, the government enforced the closure of various entertainment and recreational venues, and on March 23, all non-essential businesses were ordered to close. By the end of March, over four and a half thousand cases had been confirmed in all regions of the province. Long-term care homes were particularly hard-hit, with around 80% of deaths in the first wave occurring in centres d'hébergement de soins de longue durée (CHSLDs) and résidences privée pour aînés (RPAs). [3]

As summer approached, the number of daily cases saw a steep decline, leading to the relaxation of some health restrictions. [10] [11] [12] However, beginning in late summer and autumn 2020, a second wave of the virus began to emerge in Quebec and throughout Canada. [13] In September, certain restrictions, including the prohibition of private gatherings and the closure of indoor dining rooms, were reinstated in the greater areas of Montreal and Quebec City. [14] As autumn progressed into winter, cases continued to rise, with daily case counts periodically breaking provincial records, prompting the Quebec government to tighten restrictions further and expand them to more regions. By early December, Quebec had reached a total of 100,000 cases of COVID-19. [2]

Following Health Canada's approval of the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the vaccination campaign began in Quebec on December 14, with the first vaccine in Canada given to a Quebec City long-term care home resident. [15]

Quebec entered a province-wide lockdown on December 25 (Christmas Day) 2020 [16] and implemented a curfew on January 9, 2021. [17] In February 2021, as a result of a decline in cases, Quebec began to reopen the economy regionally, allowing for non-essential businesses to reopen. [18] Soon after, in April, the reopening was reversed due to a third wave driven by the variants, especially the Alpha variant. [19] [20] As cases began to fall in tandem with the acceleration of the vaccination campaign in May, [21] restrictions started to loosen, with the curfew ending on May 28 in the entire province. [22] Restrictions were expected to continue to gradually lift over the summer, with the mask mandate meant to end at the end of August, but a fourth wave halted these plans. [23] In order to avoid another lockdown as a result of the fourth wave, the province instituted a vaccine passport system on September 1, 2021, becoming one of the first provinces in Canada to do so. [24]

Until 2021, Quebec had reported the highest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Canada, eventually overtaken by Ontario. [25]

1) On 23 March 2020, the large jump in positive results corresponds to a directive that local PCR tests done by designated hospitals no longer need to be confirmed by the Public Health laboratory. Previously, tests confirmed only at designated hospitals were considered "presumed" rather than "confirmed".
2) On 16 April 2020, the increase in deaths is due to a change in methodology and the time taken for epidemiological investigations.
3) On 3 May 2020, the large increase in cases includes the increase from the previous day (892 new cases) and 1,317 cases from April that hadn't yet been tabulated due to a technical problem. Source: CBC News
4) On 24 June 2020, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux announced that the update frequency of cases will change from daily to weekly as of June 26. The decision was subsequently reversed. The data for June 25, 26 and 27 provided by the Québec Government is missing the number of recoveries. For the sake of transparency, the number of recoveries for the missing dates was set to the same value as that of June 25.
5) On 17 July 2020, the large number of recoveries is due to a revision of the algorithm used by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) to determine when a person may be considered recovered. [26]
6) The numbers for Christmas (December 25, 2020) and recoveries for Boxing Day (December 26, 2020) were not available.
7) The number of deaths and recoveries for January 1, 2021 and January 2, 2021 were not reported but the cumulative amount were added to the tally on January 3, 2021.
8) Of the 88 deaths announced on January 22, 2021, 37 occurred between December 6, 2020 and January 17, 2021. This delay in the transfer of deaths is due to an issue of synchronization between information systems.

Vaccination

Quebec received their first shipments of COVID-19 vaccines on December 13, 2020. [27] Priority vaccination of long-term care home residents and healthcare workers began the next day, with an 89-year-old resident of a long-term care home in Quebec City being the first in the province and country to receive a vaccine. [28] On March 1, 2021, vaccination of the general population began, starting with people 80 years of age or older in Montreal. [29] Over the course of the next three months, the vaccination campaign was gradually expanded to each age group in descending order. By May 14, all adults in Quebec were able to book a vaccination appointment, [30] and by June 6, 75% of eligible Quebecers had received at least one dose of a vaccine. [31] On September 1, 2021, a vaccine passport came into effect for restaurants, bars, and gyms, among others. [32]

Vaccination against COVID-19 is not mandatory in Quebec and the vaccines are free of charge for those who choose to get it. [33]

Progressive regional alert and intervention system

On September 8, 2020, the province unveiled a four-tier system to determine guidance and restrictions based on present risks at a regional level, based on caseload and healthcare capacity. All tiers are subject to continued practice of social distancing, mandatory masking, and hygiene practices. [34] [35] [36]

Impact

Economic and financial

On March 16, 2020, the government of Quebec announced financial compensation to workers who returned from abroad that had been placed in segregation, and did not have access to employment insurance. The Programme d'aide temporaire aux travailleurs touchés par le coronavirus (PATT) paid $573 per week for two weeks. [39]

On March 20, the government of Quebec announced the suspension of interest on student loans as of April 1, 2020, for the next six months. [40]

Due to the economic impact of the pandemic, initiatives emerged to promote local purchasing, including the social media campaign #OnSeSerreLesCoudes ("We stick together") [41] and Panier Bleu—a government-run directory promoting Quebecois retailers that are offering online sales. [42]

On April 2, a salary bonus of 8% to all healthcare professionals on the front line and a bonus of 4% to the rest of the network's employees was announced by ministers Christian Dubé and Danielle McCann. [43] A salary increase of $4 per hour was also granted to the 34,000 beneficiary attendants for a period of 16 weeks. [44] On April 4, a bonus of 8% was also granted to the paramedics in the province. [45]

On April 3, Minister of the Economy Pierre Fitzgibbon announced $150 million in expenditure to help small and medium-sized businesses impacted by the pandemic. [46] Hydro-Québec announced that its executives are renouncing their salary increase for 2020 and that the bonuses and bonuses for 2019 will be paid later this year. In addition, Hydro-Quebec donated 125,000 protective masks to the Quebec government. [47]

In an interview with Gérard Filion of RDI Économie on April 16, the Minister of Finance, Éric Girard, predicted a budget deficit between $10 and $15 billion for the year 2020. The government had tabled its budget for the year 2020 on March 10, before the start of the pandemic. Its calculation was based on the assumption that 40% of the Quebec economy would be put on pause for a period of eight weeks, and that there would be an increase in health spending. [48]

Layoffs

On March 15, 2020, the Antonopoulos group — owner of many hotels and restaurants in Old Montreal — announced to its employees that several layoffs were expected. [49] Groupe Sportscene (owner of sports bar chain La Cage) laid off 2,200 of its 2,500 employees. [50] Cirque du Soleil announced the temporary layoff of 4,679 employees, representing almost 95% of its workforce. [51] On March 26, Cogeco Media announced that it would lay off 130 employees, representing a quarter of their workforce. [52] On April 6, CAE announced the layoff of approximately 2,600 employees, representing just over a quarter of their workforce. [53]

On March 24, the city of Quebec laid off nearly 2,000 employees. [54] On April 4, more than half of municipal workers in Donnacona were laid off. [55] In Lévis, the city has laid off 353 temporary employees for three weeks. Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures and L'Ancienne-Lorette have also laid off fifty employees. [56]

Healthcare system

Since March 15, 2020, anyone who has left a health professional order, such as the Order of Nurses of Quebec  [ Wikidata ], may begin practicing that profession again, without charge, as long as they have not been out of the order for more than 5 years, and are not over 70 years old. [57] [58]

On March 31, Premier Legault warned of potential shortages of medical supplies within the next week, including personal protective equipment, and announced that Premier of Ontario Doug Ford had agreed to divert some of its shipments of medical equipment to the province. [59] The province of Alberta also announced on April 11 that they would be sending 250,000 N95 masks, 2 million procedural masks, and 15 million gloves to Quebec. [60]

On April 5, the Quebec government began to centralize the purchase of drugs, and sought to find an alternative drug for propofol, out of fear of a shortage. [61]

On May 5, Premier Legault revealed that 11,200 workers in the healthcare system were absent. [62] Two days later, that number had increased to 11,600. [63] Of the workers who were present, only 50% were working full-time. [62] The lack of full-time healthcare personnel in Quebec continues to be a problem, particularly in long-term care facilities.

Long-term care facilities

CHSLD Herron, where 47 long-term care residents died between March 13 and May 31, 2020.

As of April 1, 2020, 519 long-term care facilities in Quebec, including both lodging centres for long-term care (French : centre d'hébergement de soins de longue durée, CHSLD) and private seniors' residences (French : résidence privée pour aînés, RPA), [65] had at least one confirmed case of COVID-19. [66] As of April 30, a total of 6603 residents in CHSLDs and RPAs had been infected. [67] Nearly half of Quebec's deaths from the pandemic have occurred in long-term care facilities. [68]

CHSLD Sainte-Dorothee in Laval has had one of the largest outbreaks; on April 8, it was reported that at least 115 of its 250 residents had been infected, and that there had been at least 13 deaths. [69] The same day, Premier Legault announced that the province would deploy 500 nurses, 450 doctors, and more equipment to long-term care facilities in order to help reduce their burden. [69]

At least 150 cases have been connected to CHSLD Herron, located in the Montreal suburb of Dorval. [70] There were also reports of neglect and poor living conditions at the facility, with staff having deserted the facility since March 29, and health care workers describing it as being akin to a horror movie or a concentration camp, due to discovering unhygienic living conditions, and residents neglected for nourishment and personal hygiene. [70] [71] [72] On April 10, Health Minister McCann announced that an investigation would be launched into the facility, which had been placed under provincial trusteeship. [73] [70] [71]

On April 11, the province reported that there had been 31 deaths at CHSLD Herron over the last month, with at least five attributed to COVID-19. CIUSSS de l'Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal (CIUSSSOIM) president Lynne McVey stated that the facility's owner was uncooperative, preventing authorities from obtaining the health records of its residents until April 8. [74] Quebec's coroner's office and the Montreal police are also investigating. [75]

That weekend, teams were sent to all 41 private CHSLDs in the province to evaluate their response to the pandemic. [76] On April 12, AELDPQ (an association representing Quebec's private CHSLDs) sent a letter to Minister McCann, accusing the province of breaking promises to increase funding for private CHSLDs, not displaying equal scrutiny towards public facilities, cutting off private facilities' procurement of personal protective equipment via provincial suppliers, and not providing promised emergency funding for them to purchase PPE (requiring them to cover their own costs). [76]

On April 13, Premier Legault presented findings from the evaluations, reporting that the "vast majority" of private CHSLDs were "very well managed," but that there were several that required further monitoring and that the province would now be inspecting all 2,600 CHSLDs. He admitted that pre-existing issues with under-staffing at the facilities due to low wages may have been exacerbated by the pandemic, and announced plans to give temporary bonuses to attendants and orderlies, pending negotiations with unions to raise wages outright. [77] [78]

On April 14, Premier Legault announced that Quebec would allow residents of CHSLDs to receive visits from a pre-existing primary caregiver beginning April 16. [68] The same day, the owners of CHSLD Herron sent a letter to Legault accusing CIUSSSOIM of engaging in a cover-up, claiming that 28 of the deaths reported had actually occurred after the facility was placed under trusteeship on March 29, disputing that they had not allowed them access to health records until April 8, and that "no communication was made to the families of the residents by the representatives of the CIUSSSOIM, despite numerous requests made to that effect by the employees as well as members of the management of the CHLSD Herron." [79]

On April 16, the Montreal Regional Director of Public Health, Mylène Drouin, stated that outbreaks of COVID—19 had affected at least 75% of long-term care facilities in the city. [80] Two days later, the Canadian Armed Forces began to deploy 125 workers — including nurses and other support staff — to assist CHSLDs in managing the outbreak and augmenting staff. [81] [82] On April 22, Premier Legault announced that the province had requested an additional 1,000 workers to "give us more resources to help us with non-medical tasks." [83]

On May 5, 2020, Premier Legault announced that some restrictions in uninfected RPAs would be lifted, allowing residents to go for walks unaccompanied and to meet with family outdoors, as long as social distancing measures were being respected. [84]

On June 4, 2021, the government announced that more restrictions would be lifted in CHSLDs and RPAs. In green zones, residents will be able to receive 9 visitors. In yellow zones, residents will be able to receive visitors from a single "bubble", usually consisting of one household. [85]

On August 26, 2021, the investigation into CHSLD Herron ended with no criminal charges laid. [86]

Travel restrictions

On April 1, 2020, border checkpoints such as this one on the Alexandra Bridge in Gatineau were implemented. Quebec COVID-19 border crossing.jpg
On April 1, 2020, border checkpoints such as this one on the Alexandra Bridge in Gatineau were implemented.

As of March 16, the Montréal–Trudeau International Airport is one of only four airports across the country that is accepting international flights to Canada from outside the Caribbean, Mexico, and the United States. [87]

The Quebec government has advised against non-essential interprovincial travel. On March 28, regional access to the regions of Bas-Saint-Laurent, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord, Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean, Gaspésie—Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Nord-du-Québec, Nunavik and Eeyou Istchee have been restricted by police roadblocks and airport controls. [88] [89]

On April 1, security checkpoints were implemented in several municipalities in the Lanaudiere region, the Laurentians, La Tuque, and the Outaouais region (including the Ontario border), to restrict non-essential travel into the regions. [90] [91]

Justice

Since March 15, 2020, all hearings before a judicial administrative court must be held behind closed doors, and all visits (except those of lawyers) to a detention facility in Quebec were suspended. [92] All decisions of the Tribunal administratif du logement authorizing the resumption of housing or the eviction of the tenant were suspended. [93]

Since March 16, all appeals to be heard by the Supreme Court of Canada in March, April and May 2020 have been postponed to June 2020, [94] just as the hearings convened from March 16 to April 30, 2020 before the Quebec Access to Information Commission were cancelled. [95]

Since March 19, orders made by the Court of Quebec that allowed children of the DPJ to maintain physical contact with their biological parents were suspended. [96]

Since March 20, individuals who served an intermittent sentence were on medical leave, and all deadline to introduce a case in front of the Tribunal administratif du Québec, the Tribunal administratif du travail, the Tribunal administratif des marchés financiers, or the Commission d'accès à l'information were suspended during the pandemic. [97]

From March 23 to April 24, 2020, all deadlines for civil procedures were suspended, and only urgent cases were heard before the Quebec Court of Appeal, the Superior Court of Quebec and the Court of Quebec. [98]

On April 1, the bar school of the province of Quebec postponed the final evaluation to May 25. [99]

The curfew that lasted from January 9, 2021, to May 28, resulted in more than 20,000 fines, amounting to about $30 million. [100]

Schools

On March 11, 2020, Premier Legault recommended that a voluntary 14-day quarantine be imposed on all students and faculty returning from school trips to countries strongly affected by the pandemic (such as China and Italy), even if there are no signs of symptoms. He also cancelled upcoming trips to such locations. [101] The same day, students and staff members from several schools who had recently travelled to Italy were told to stay home. [102] [103] [104] Collège International Marie de France suspended classes, pending the testing of a student who was suspected to have been infected. [105] On March 13, the Université de Montréal cancelled all international teaching and research activities until the next school year. [106]

[108] On March 16, the Université Laval, the Université de Sherbrooke, and the École de technologie supérieure transitioned to online classes. [106] Université Laval and Université de Sherbrooke established emergency funds for students impacted by the pandemic. [109] [110]

The province launched a website known as L'École Ouverte (Open School), which provides a collection of online education resources and activities in French and English. [115]

On April 20, Minister of Education Jean-François Roberge announced that the province's R score system (typically used by universities to help select CEGEP applicants) would be suspended for the winter semester, so that students are not "unfairly penalized" due to a lack of uniformity in responses and approaches by Quebec's CEGEP's. [116]

On April 27, Premier Legault announced that elementary schools and daycares would be allowed to reopen outside of the Montreal area on May 11, and within Montreal on May 18, if cases remain stable. Classes will be limited to 15 students each, and parents will be allowed to choose whether their children may return to classes. Secondary and post-secondary schools will not be re-opened until the next school year, to prevent overcrowding of public transit. [117]

On April 11, Tennis Canada announced that the women's tournament of the 2020 Rogers Cup would be postponed, pursuant to the request by the provincial government. The men's tournament in Toronto was ultimately postponed in June. Montreal will therefore host the women's tournament (now the National Bank Open) in 2021. [143] [144] [145]

Other provincial sports bodies also suspended activities, including Basketball Québec, [146] Baseball Québec (baseball activity suspended until at least May 1), [147] Hockey Québec (including the Quebec Junior Hockey League, which called off the remainder of the season), [148] [149] and Soccer Québec (activity suspended until at least May 1).

[153]

The 2020–21 QMJHL season was met with multiple disruptions due to fluctuating public health orders in Quebec and Atlantic Canada, although it completed its regular season, and was the only CHL league to crown a champion (the WHL played a limited regular season within its divisions only, and the OHL did not play due to Ontario public health orders). [154] [155] [156] [157] [158] During the 2020–21 NHL season, all Montreal Canadiens regular season games were played behind closed doors and against Canadian opponents only.

The COVID-19 pandemic in Montreal is part of an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a novel infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Until April 2021, Montreal was the worst affected health region in Canada. Despite being surpassed by Toronto in total number of cases, Montreal still has the highest total death count and the highest death rate in Canada, with the death rate from COVID-19 being two times higher on the island of Montreal than in the city of Toronto due in large part to substantial outbreaks in long-term care homes. Montreal is Canada's second most populous city, the largest city in Quebec, and the eighth most populous city in North America.

Economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada Overview of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian economy

The COVID-19 pandemic had a deep impact on the Canadian economy, leading it into a recession. The governments' social distancing rules had the effect of limiting economic activity in the country. Companies started considering mass-layoffs of workers, which was largely prevented by the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy. But despite these efforts, Canada's unemployment rate was 13.5% in May 2020, the highest it has been since 1976.

The following is a timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic in Montreal.

2018 Franco-Ontarian Black Thursday

The 2018 Franco-Ontarian Black Thursday occurred on 15 November 2018, when the government of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, announced a number of cuts to Franco-Ontarian institutions in the province, notably the elimination of the office of the French Language Services Commissioner and of the soon-to-be-opened Université de l'Ontario français. The cuts provoked a significant backlash from the Franco-Ontarian community, leading to the largest mass mobilisations in Franco-Ontarian history, surpassing those of SOS Montfort two decades earlier, and leading to the government of Ontario mostly backing down from the cuts.
