Frequently Asked Questions - Covid-19

Whether you’re a visitor, or a member of Tourism Eastern Townships, and have some questions concerning the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19)? Read on to find out more!

As you know, the government has established a colour code associated with how the Covid pandemic is evolving throughout the different regions of the province. As of Thursday, November 12, the region will enter the red zone. Here is how the government has defined this colour level:

“Level 4–Maximum Alert includes targeted and additional more restrictive measures that could extend to prohibiting non-essential activities in situations where risk cannot be sufficiently contained, while avoiding the generalized confinement that was experienced during the first wave of the pandemic as much as possible”.

For example, museums, movie theatres, sports centres will be closed. Restaurant dining areas as well, although most of these will be offering take-out meals or home deliveries.

Spa baths and saunas will also be closed, but the usual cares offered (massages, esthetic treatments…) can still be given.

Also, inter-regional travel is not recommended.

What are the Eastern Townships’ territorial limits?

Some of the Eastern Townships’ bordering regions aren’t all on the same alert level. Many among you have been wondering whether certain cities and towns are truly part of the Townships.

Although some cities—Granby, for example—are part of the Montérégie’s administrative region, in health matters, they’re under the jurisdiction of the Eastern Townships.

To help you find the information you’re looking for, here’s a map of the region.
