MRCs within the Estrie region want out of the red zone

The Brome-Missisquoi and Haute-Yamaska MRCs are asking the Quebec government to be considered separate from Estrie hot spots and returned to an orange zone, citing low COVID-19 statistics in those areas.
The two MRCs, which include the regional health sectors of la Pommeraie and La Haute-Yamaska, sent out a joint press release emphasizing the excellent performance of the population in respecting the public health directives concerning COVID-19 in those areas and asking the government to recognize their efforts.
“It is remarkable to see how well the population, merchants and businesses respect the safety instructions. Recent data shows that the situation in Brome-Missisquoi and the Haute-Yamaska is calm and reassuring. I would like to congratulate everyone for their efforts,” commented Brome-Missisquoi Prefect Patrick Melchior.
“I ask all our fellow citizens to maintain their efforts to distance themselves from society, to continue wearing their face coverings and to continue avoiding gatherings. I also invite everyone to go and get vaccinated, because it is through vaccination that we will be able to collectively stop the progression of COVID-19 and thus envisage a return to normal life,” added Haute-Yamaska Prefect Paul Sarrazin.
