CA, 09 Apr 2021
Quebec Premier François Legault announced an extension of emergency measures in Gatineau, Lévis and Quebec City on Thursday after a spike in new COVID-19 cases.

Quebec City registered the biggest jump, with 436 infections reported on Thursday, almost double the 250 cases recorded on Wednesday.

Non-essential businesses and schools have been closed in Quebec City, Lévis and Gatineau since last week, and the overnight curfew in those cities was moved ahead to 8 p.m. Initially, the premier said the emergency measures would be in place for 10 days, or until April 12.

The emergency measures have now been extended until April 18.

Restrictions are also being tightened in Montreal and Laval with the reinstatement of the 8 p.m. curfew as of Sunday, Legault said.
