No mask? Expect a fine

Inspectors will be handing out fines to people without masks, especially in areas coding yellow on Quebec’s new zone system. Montreal could move from green to yellow very quickly as things stand.

Wednesday evening, my neighbours held a party in the alley. At least a dozen people from multiple households nearby hung out, ate, drank, sang together, with no distancing and, as far as I could see, no masks. I didn’t attend, but wondered how many similar social events are taking place now, as people face a combination of the end of summer with no end in sight to the provisional lockdown.
