– Quebec officials to present regional COVID-19 alert system

Quebec’s health minister is expected to unveil a new regional novel coronavirus alert system Tuesday as the pandemic continues.

Christian Dubé will be in Montreal alongside Dr. Horacio Arruda, director of Quebec public health, to present the new measure.

Over the past week, a surge in new cases has also led to officials to call on Quebecers to be vigilant and abide by public health directives to limit the spread of the virus.

Health authorities reported 216 new cases on Monday — marking the second consecutive day when infections surpassed the threshold of 200 cases.

The government has not tightened restrictions as a result, but Premier François Legault said any new measures would be implemented region by region.
