1.06: The number of people infected by a single COVID-19 case, or R(t). The rate of spread is considered under control when the number is below one.

Across the region
Quebec reported 37 more COVID-19 cases in the Outaouais in its Friday update. That area's four COVID-19 ICU patients are more than the rest of eastern Ontario and western Quebec combined.
Quebec's vaccine passport for many non-essential public places is now in effect, with a grace period until Wednesday.
The wider region saw a slight resurgence in doses given after last week's vaccine passport news.
