Quebec Premier François Legault on Tuesday announced the province would be extending schools' holiday break until at least Jan. 11 in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

He said this does not change the original plan for high schools, but elementary schools must also remain closed until Jan. 11. He said they are also asking office employees to work from home starting Dec. 17. However, they also announced some relaxing of restrictions during this period involving outdoor activities, and people living alone being able to join one other family bubble.

Legault made the announcement alongside chief public health officer Dr. Horacio Arrude and Health Minister Christian Dubé.

A day after the first COVID-19 vaccines were given in the province, Dubé said there was an awareness campaign being prepared on the COVID-19 vaccine to help better educate people about being vaccinated and that it is safe to do so. He said in addition to the 300 vaccinated Monday, another 900 people were vaccinated on Tuesday.

The province reported 1,741 new cases on Tuesday, with seven more deaths in the past 24 hours. However, 30 more deaths that occurred between Dec. 8 and Dec.13 were also reported, as well as two that occurred at an unknown date, bringing the total number of deaths reported on Tuesday to 39.
