Le grand quiz de La Francophonie was a huge success this year despite the coronavirus crisis and the start of lockdown, with no less than 2,500 participants worldwide, including 2,153 British schoolchildren.
On march 13, 2020, the Gouvernement du Québec adopted an Order in Council that declares a health emergency throughout Québec’s territory. This exceptional measure empowers the government to implement an array of measures to protect the health of the population.
It is important to follow all of the recommendations and take appropriate action to protect yourself. Every individual also has their part to play to reduce the risk of spreading viruses. Special attention must be paid to more fragile people and older people, especially individuals 70 years of age and over, since they are at greater risk of complications.
Information and safety instructions regarding returns to Québec are also available via https://www.quebec.ca/sante/problemes-de-sante/a-z/coronavirus-2019/.
