"The situation remains fragile and we must remain cautious", Guilbault said.

In Quebec, groups of up to 10 people from no more than three households will be allowed to gather outside starting Friday, according to CTV News.

Premier François Legault said that for camps to meet the new ratio of counsellors to campers, which he says is about twice as high as in past years, they are looking to hire more people.

If the rules aren't followed, the number of COVID-19 cases could increase quickly, forcing the province to shutter again, he warned.

Quebec has now had 3,718 deaths as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and on Wednesday health authorities announced that the province now has a total of 44,775 confirmed cases.

There are 1,504 hospitalizations due to COVID-19, down 41 from the day before.

Myers reports that NY would rather wait to make a deal, while Adams has grown impatient and wants an immediate resolution. Jamal Adams and the New York Jets have reached an impasse in their contract talks with tensions rising.

Guilbault said about two per cent of Quebec's inmate population has become infected with the virus, including about 60 people at the detention centre in Montreal that housed the inmate who died.

She says that in libraries, book and document lending will be the only services allowed to reopen, and the public won't be able to circulate beyond the lending counters.

The Public Health Department has given the green light for day camps in Quebec to open on June 22 with safety measures in place including smaller groups and social distancing.

"Kids need to be deconfined", Arruda said, and that the province needed to start reopening activities for children. "Don't think there's going to be no cases", Arruda said.

But returning to how things were without any restrictions would surely bring about a second wave, he said.
