“Yes the students [par exemple] can return home and if intercepted they will be able to pass without any problem. They must respect the recommended protection and distancing rules, ”notes Richard Massé, strategic medical adviser to the National Directorate of Public Health, in a written response.

Tuesday, Prime Minister François Legault announced flexibility for single people: they will now be able to attend a single “family bubble” during the holidays. He gave the example of students who return to their native region to live with their parents during the winter school break.

But at the same time, Mr. Legault prohibited movement from a red zone to an orange zone from December 17. Only two regions remain in the orange zone, the Côte-Nord and Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

Quebec therefore confirms that the relaxation for single people takes precedence over the travel ban.
