Quebec Premier François Legault announced on Tuesday that Montreal and Laval will move from red to orange zones on June 7, as the government continues to gradually loosen COVID-19 public health measures across the province.
The new designation means students in Grades 9, 10 and 11 can return to high school for in-person classes on a full-time basis to cap off the year. Restaurants will also be allowed to reopen their indoor dining rooms, but with some measures in place.
Under the same plan, the province is moving the Saguenay, Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec regions to yellow next Monday.
The regions of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord and the Nord-du-Québec, meanwhile, will be bumped down to green, the lowest level on the pandemic colour-coded alert scale.
The province reported its lowest daily tally of infections Tuesday since late last summer, with 208 new cases.
