On Thursday, Premier Francois Legault announced that Quebec will move forward with a vaccination passport set in place to allow those who took both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to continue living a "normal life."
According to the Montreal Gazette, Legault has been concerned with the increase of COVID-19 cases in the last few days, and believes that rising cases may lead to the beginning of the fourth wave. Legault, who is not a doctor, said that he expects hospitalizations and deaths to go up in the near future.
Legault has stated that Health Minister Christian Dubé will inform Quebec residents on the details regarding the vaccine passport and when it will be in effect. By the Quebec government's estimate, the vaccine passport should be a reality in the province sometime in September. It will mostly be used to prevent non-vaccinated Quebec residents from accessing non-essential services.
Quebec Health Officials have reported an average of 160 new positive COVID-19 cases in the last seven days – compared to an average of 74 the previous week.
Even though cases are rising, however, Legault still wants to stick with his plan of having all students ranging from elementary school to the university-level attend classes in person during the fall.
