The holidays are approaching and companies are already starting to plan end-of-year parties at the office.
The situation is expected to be complicated, especially for restaurants, where certain health restrictions remain.
We’re already starting to have questions for Christmas parties. “People are not sure how things are going, because the rules change a lot,” Pascal Auger, general manager of La Taverne Carrefour Laval, said in an interview with TVA Nouvelles.
