COVID-19: Plante puts civil authorities on alert

The mayor held a presser Tuesday morning to announce that the city’s civil authorities are now on alert even though we’ve had few cases of COVID-19 so far.

Twenty people were seen and tested on the first day of the Hotel-Dieu’s coronavirus clinic Monday.

The Canadiens are keeping visitors out of the dressing room, and Evenko promises to ramp up cleanliness at the Bell Centre, but hockey games are expected to go on normally.

Travel agents (they still exist) are feeling the chill, and a Montreal MP who went to a political event in the U.S. where a confirmed coronavirus case was present has gone into voluntary self‑quarantine.
