7 Red Zone Date Ideas

In the News

Quarantine and other public health measures will be in place for the foreseeable future in Quebec. If you’re looking to go on a date, where can you go in a red zone?

Standard Precautions in Red Zones

Love may give you wings but be sure to keep your feet on the ground and follow public health rules. In red zones:

  • Keep two meters apart.
  • Wear a mask if you can’t maintain a safe distance.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Be home by 8.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel between cities and regions.

Stay at home?

An easy and legal option: have your date at home. If you and your partner don’t live together, you can still visit each other and spend the night. Children must be absent when you’re visiting your partner though.

Take advantage of the quality time together. You could cook together, order delivery, play a board game or just hang out and watch a film.

Visit a museum

Museums are now open across the province. Go back in time, learn about history, or marvel at works of art!

You should know that you need to make reservations ahead of time at most museums.

See the wildlife

Did you know that you can see snow owls, elephants, giraffes, polar bears, and tropical fish in Quebec even during the winter?

Zoos and aquariums have reopened! You should know that most require reservations ahead of time.

Let off some steam on the ski slopes

Adrenaline junkie? Hit the slopes with your skis or board! If you’re not an expert, you can even take classes with the appropriate health measures.

Explore the outdoors together

Hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing are excellent ways to discover nature. Quebec has a wealth of public trails!

However, you may have to buy tickets or make reservations for some places.

Go skating in a winter wonderland

You can go skating in a park, on a river, or through a frozen enchanted forest. Check ahead to make sure that your location of choice allows outside residents.

Browse through the library

There is something intoxicating about the smell of books. You could go try to find your next favourite book together at your local library!

Be sure to find out the rules before you go.
