Days after returning to the classroom, the province has confirmed that two schools in Quebec City have had cases of COVID-19 cases. There are 81 students who are currently in isolation for 14 days after three cases of COVID-19 were identified within the schools. The province considers the cases community spread, as the three cases are not related.

Elsewhere in the province, four teachers at a school in the Lower Laurentians tested positive for COVID-19. Grade 10 and 11 students were advised to stay home on Friday, and about 20 teachers were instructed to enter preventative isolation.

Across Quebec, there were 140 new cases of COVID-19 reported on Monday, and two more deaths related to the virus.
