The latest Quebec health department statistics indicate that suburban instances of new COVID-19 cases remained low in late August and early September.

However, these statistics do not include cases in “closed milieus,” such as seniors homes, hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.

In Dollard des Ormeaux, cases went from less than five in the last week of August to 20 in early September.
