Quebec gyms would be allowed to reopen soon

Forget celebrating Valentine’s Day on February 14 in Quebec this year. According to various reports, gyms in Quebec will be allowed to reopen on that day, so many people in the province will likely celebrate that instead.

This news was first reported by the Montreal Journal Tuesday morning, then Radio-Canada.

According to both sources, Premier François Legault is expected to officially announce the exciting news during a press conference at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 1.

Quebec gyms were again forced to close on December 20, 2021 — but it looks like you might be able to work out in your favorite spots again shortly.

Most recently, on Tuesday, January 25, Legault announced a series of what he called “small” relaxations of the rules.

These included the reopening of restaurant dining rooms at 50% capacity on Monday January 31, as well as new private gathering rules which now allow either two household bubbles or a maximum of four people from several different households. .

Then the following Monday, February 7, live music and cinema nights will return. Performance halls and cinemas in Quebec are authorized to reopen from this date.

Also on February 7, places of worship in Quebec are allowed to reopen their doors half full with a maximum of 250 people.

And now, it is expected that the gyms can reopen the Monday after!

Definitely, Monday is Legault’s favorite day of the week … But hey, we’re not complaining.
