François Legault didn’t seem very optimistic for Montreal at today’s news conference. While businesses and schools are reopening today for the rest of the province, the future for Montreal remains very uncertain. According to Legault, if the confinement would be lifted under the current conditions, the outbreak would likely worsen for Montreal.
“We are all concerned about Montreal, me above all," said Legault. As of today, businesses, schools and daycares are set to reopen on May 25th for the Greater Montreal Area. “If the situation doesn’t get better, we will delay the reopening of businesses, schools and daycare centres” he added.
Legault also mentioned it would not be surprising if they decided schools would remain closed until September. The situation will be monitored very closely, and the government will “follow” science in the next few weeks.
