Bring on summer! As more and more tourist activities begin to open in Quebec, it's proven that even with social distancing, we can take advantage of the sunny season. The latest attraction is waterparks, but they aren't alone in the recent Quebec re-opening. In fact, the province is now bringing back almost every single sector with just three exceptions.
The announcement was made by the province's top doc on Thursday, June 25 in the afternoon. Dr. Horacio Arruda unveiled the final phase of deconfinement, which includes the reopening of water parks, but also , spas and casinos.
That wasn't all, though. In Quebec, all activities can start again right now, except for three things that remain a no-go: large gatherings, sleep-away camps, and contact sports.
"All the sectors that were still confined will be able to resume their activities," announced Dr. Arruda.
As for the water parks who have now been given the green light, some of them are ready to open their doors as early as next week.
For example, Village Vacances Valcartier will welcome its first customers on June 30.
In a notice on their website, they announced what measures will be put in place so that people can enjoy the park safely.
For example, you will need to buy your tickets in advance online. They will also be limiting how many ticket stations are open for receiving guests.
Other measures include keeping two metres apart, bringing hand sanitizer, following cough etiquette, and of course staying home if you are sick.
Valcartier isn't the only park gearing up for a comeback. In a video shared last week on Facebook, the Super Aqua Club had indicated that it would switch to an online booking system as well.
The same goes for Sommet Saint-Sauveur water park, which will also have capacity reduced to only 30%.
As for tourists who would rather stay dry on their vacations, Mont Tremblant has also announced that they are back for the summer season and ready to welcome visitors with various attractions coming in the next couple of weeks.
