Only six of today’s deaths are new, with three others dating back before June 13, bringing the total to 5,417 deaths.
The province also reported 92 new confirmed cases of the virus, raising the total to 54,766.

The province is preparing to reopen several sectors and relax the rules for gatherings indoors on Monday, particularly impacting the Montreal area.
Restaurants will reopen in the greater Montreal and Joliette area while indoor gatherings of up to 10 people from three households will be permitted in these regions, like elsewhere in Quebec since last week.
Gyms, arenas, cinemas, concert venues and places of worship may reopen across the province with a maximum capacity of 50 people for indoor gatherings.
Day camps are also permitted to reopen Monday.View link »
