Cleaning services residential are permitted in the province of Quebec, even if the pandemic COVID-19 remains a threat to the public health, wishes to inform the ministry of the Economy.

This precision is made that many conflicting advice have been circulating recently about this service is dear to thousands of Quebecers.

“Housekeeping services residential are considered to be services and priority activities, as they are essential for many people (people with disabilities, vulnerable clients, etc),” said by e-mail to Jean-Pierre d’auteuil, head of media relations at the ministry of Economy.

Earlier this week, the indications of the government remained unclear on the cleaning services that were permitted or prohibited. Quebec publicly recognizes that certain clients are dependent upon these services.

The workers in charge of the household residential must comply with the guidelines of the public health, namely the compliance with social distancing, hand washing, hands often, and wearing protective equipment if the situation requires it.
