A curfew was declared on December 31, 2021. It is in effect between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. in all regions of Quebec.
Caregivers must follow the guidelines of the general population, including minimizing contact and respecting the curfew.
However, in certain specific situations, caregivers must go to the bedside or home of the person being cared for to provide assistance or to ensure their safety due to a specific clinical condition.
The following reasons may be given for being outside of one’s place of residence:
- to provide assistance to a person in need
- to provide a service or support to a person for safety purposes
- to provide care for a child or vulnerable person
- to visit a person at the end of life
- for an emergency
To do so, a caregiver must obtain a certificate from a health and social services establishment or a medical clinic justifying travel during curfew when clinically required for the user.
The request can be made by telephone, but the form must be signed by the professional.
There is no charge for the preparation and mailing of the travel certificate.
Consult the measures and certificate model.
