The Islands have passed the 1,000 mark in confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

As of April 21, the Institut national de santé publique du Québec has counted 60 active infections in the territory, while the total number of infections in the region has reached 488.

As for the living environments, the CHSLD Eudore-Labrie has only one affected resident.

The same is true for Foyer Chez Hélène and Logis communautaires de l’Harmonie, while five tenants are infected at Résidence Plaisance.

On the other hand, public health is again postponing the lifting of the mask requirement, which remains mandatory in public places and on public transit until mid-May.

The government explains that it is preferable to take a precautionary approach with the long Easter break just over and the changing provincial epidemiological situation.

As well, the isolation period for immunosuppressed individuals who have contracted COVID-19 is reduced to 10 days.
