Good news for hockey fans who have been vaccinated, among others. From October 8, there will be no limit on spectators at the Bell Center, Videotron Center and the rest of the stands in Quebec.
Quebec announced Thursday that it is relaxing health rules for non-amateur sports shows and events and cinemas. No more closed sections and subscriber limits.
Thus, as is already the case, only people who have been adequately vaccinated will be able to benefit from these reductions. People will need to sit down and wear a mask.
“We want Quebecker patients who have been adequately vaccinated to be able to return to a certain normal state,” said Health Minister Christian Dube.
He stressed that “the obligatory vaccination and wearing a mask are a means of transit so that we can fill our rooms to their maximum capacity.”
Currently, CH can play in front of a hall of a maximum of 7,500 fans. At full capacity, the Bell Center can hold up to 21,302 spectators.
The Canadians will play the first game of the regular season at home on October 16, with the New York Rangers visiting Montreal.
Public Health made a positive recommendation for these places because there were very few outbreaks.
