Coronavirus Canada Updates: Alberta at a 'critical' point in the COVID-19 pandemic as cases continue to rise

An additional 775 cases and 83 deaths were reported by provincial health officials in Quebec on Tuesday. This brings the total number of cases in Quebec to 25,757, and the total number of COVID-19-related deaths to 1,682.

Premier François Legault said in a news conference on Tuesday that the province will be reopening some businesses in May, including manufacturing businesses, construction and civil engineering businesses, and stores that are not located inside shopping malls. He said the goal is to see if there is any impact on contagion or on hospitals. Retail stores that meet the criteria will be able to open beginning May 4, except for those in the Montreal region, where it will be May 11.

Public Health Director Horacio Arruda said that all businesses that reopen could be subject to more closures, depending on what the result is.
