In larger gathering areas where there is a lot of circulation, such as when waiting in line, Quebecers will still be expected to keep two metres apart.

Gatherings inside private homes, however, are still restricted to 10 people from a maximum of three households. Such gatherings were permitted as of Monday across most of Quebec.

But they will need to keep a two-metre distance from adults, such as their teachers. The government is planning on announcing more details for schools on Tuesday.

Despite the new directives, the government continues to miss its daily testing targets.

Sarah Caul, ONS Head of Mortality Analysis, said: "Although London had some of the highest Covid-19 mortality rates in the country during March and April, it is now experiencing lower mortality rates compared with most areas".

But Masse said what's important is that the province maintain the "residual capacity" to test 14,000 per day if and when transmissions pick up again. "We had schools with outbreaks but no big issues with the health of the kids".

Quebec saw 181 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Friday, bringing the province's total number of infections to 53,666.

An average of 33,000 people in England had coronavirus at any given time between 25 May and 7 June, according to the figures, not including those in hospitals or care homes.

Premier François Legault said on Thursday that the province is headed in the right direction, but long-term care homes are still facing a challenge. If they successfully complete the program, the full-time orderly jobs will pay $26 an hour, up to $49,000 a year.

Quebec's long-term care homes have been hard hit by COVID-19 and had faced chronic labour shortages for years before the pandemic hit.

In England, once you adjust for the age of population, there were 128 deaths involving Covid-19 per 100,000 people in the population in the most deprived areas.
