COVID-19: Quebec city will delay$ 11 Million to help day camps

COVID-19: Québec allongera 11 M$ pour aider les camps de jour

The government Legault will delay $ 11 million to help day camps to accommodate the young people of Quebec this summer-mode COVID-19.

The minister Isabelle Charest must make the announcement Tuesday.

Public health has recently given the green light to the opening of day camps, which can accommodate children from 22 June.

But declining enrollment and the cost of sanitary measures to comply augur a wave of closures. The camps are usually managed by private companies or non-profit organizations.

The measures of distance physics will have to be adhered to in day camps, and the ratios of monitors-toddlers are scaled down. Organizations must therefore employ more staff.

Additional funds should also be provided for the day camps run by the municipalities.

More details to come…
