Open and closed during COVID-19

Usually lists of what’s open and closed are made for holiday weekends, so it’s a shift of gears to have a listing for a pandemic. The Grande bibliothèque has packed it in and closed, but the SAQ remains open.

This is going to be a really hard time for restaurateurs and an additional blow to retail, unless you’re selling basics like groceries and domestic supplies. CTV talked to some merchants in Old Montreal, which is empty of tourists.

More to come, obv.
