High school students can go without a mask in class but must cover themselves in common areas and during transport to and from school.

Quebecers can return to work as well, although it will be up to each employer to determine what that return will look like. Health officials recommend a hybrid formula that includes telecommuting as part of the work week.

Customers of bars and restaurants no longer have to sit at their tables and dancing is allowed.

Karaoke is permitted if the singer wears a face mask or stays two meters from their audience or performs behind a physical barrier.

Bar and restaurant owners are no longer required to keep a register of their customers, although customers are required to display a valid vaccination passport to access a venue. Masks remain mandatory for customers in bars and restaurants unless they are eating or drinking.
