The criteria below apply for the management of COVID-19 cases and their contacts. To find out the criteria applying to the vaccination passport, see the COVID-19 vaccination passport page. For information on all the activities and places the passport is applied, see the Places and Activities requiring the COVID-19 Vaccination Passport page.
In Québec, in the context of the management of COVID-19 cases and their contacts, people are considered to be adequately protected when one of the following situations applies:
- they have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in the past seven or more days;
- they have received a dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (outside Québec) in the past 14 or more days;
- they got COVID-19 more than six months ago and received a dose of vaccine in the past seven or more days;
- they got COVID-19 in the past six months.
These situations do not apply to people who are immunocompromised. These people should contact Info-Santé 811 or talk to their physicians to obtain more information on what will enable them to be adequately protected.
In the event that symptoms appear during that period, adequately protected people must self-isolate, complete the COVID-19 symptom self-assessment tool , and follow the recommendations given to them.
