François Legault says the maintenance of the banquets of 20 people who have been vaccinated for Christmas will depend on the number of people admitted to the hospital as the holiday season approaches.
At a press conference on Monday, the Prime Minister stressed the importance of sticking to meetings of 10 or less people by December 23, after which 20 vaccinated people will be allowed to meet.

François Legault is scheduled to meet with public health this evening and Health Minister Christian Dube is expected to hold a press conference on the situation on Tuesday.
“Here we are at 268 [hospitalisations] Today. Are we going to go below 1500 or below 500 and below 1000 as we are in the US or Europe? That’s the decent thing to do, and it should end there, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
At this point, Franுவாois Legalt avoids closing the border with neighboring Ontario, where the exchange of the Omicron variant is very important.
“It is true that we are still in a very low level hospital, but we are closely monitoring it,” he recalled.
There were 1,628 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths reported in Quebec as of Monday. As of Sunday, the province had reported 1,753 infections and one death.
Dr. Theresa Tom, chief executive of the Public Health Service of Canada (PHAC), said Monday that the spread of the Omigron variant among the Canadian population has indeed reached a socially pervasive level.
It therefore preaches “with caution” to the provinces and Canadians at meetings in the coming months, however, does not make a clear recommendation as to the limits of the meetings.
