The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health and Social Services do not approve the holding of events, it is up to the organizing committees and organizations to assess the feasibility according to the directives issued by the General Directorate of Health public.
For now, the important thing is to make sure you follow the messages sent by the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and Social Services and the National Director of Public Health. Various measures with regard to deconfinement and the resumption of activities are communicated regularly, and this, according to the epidemiological portraits of the different regions of Quebec.
One thing is certain, the following public health instructions will be maintained for all participants, spectators and volunteers:
- Allow physical distancing of 2 meters;
- Ensure that basic hygiene measures, such as hand washing are provided and accessible;
- Avoid, as far as possible, any contact;
- Ideally, plan outdoor activities, including hospitality, registration, prize giving, etc.
Add to this that you will have to comply with the rules that may be issued by your municipality, your MRC, the Quebec sports federation or the national leisure organization concerned.
Here are some clarifications regarding the gatherings.
The 50-person limit at gatherings is for indoor events and applies to spectators only. The number of participants (including supervisory staff) in an indoor activity must respect the distance provided according to the space available and the rules established by the sports federations in order to limit prolonged contact between participants. In addition, there are no limits to participants and spectators for outdoor events as long as the physical distance of two meters is respected.
Remember that festivals and major events are still canceled until August 31. In addition, professional and semi-professional sports must be held behind closed doors.
