COVID-19: Targeted emergency measures for certain regions of the province
A new phenomenon has appeared in our region. The rapid and exponential increase in confirmed daily cases of Covid-19 variants in certain regions and city of the province which forced Prime Minister François Legault to announce, at a press briefing yesterday, to put in place targeted “emergency” measures in certain regions of Quebec.
The entire regions of the Capitale-Nationale, Saguenay Lac St-Jean, Outaouais, as well as those of Chaudière-Appalaches and Bas-Saint-Laurent are once again in the red zone after a brief stint in orange.
The cities of Quebec, Lévis and Gatineau, at the maximum red level, are therefore particularly targeted by these emergency measures, including the return of the curfew at 8 p.m. and the closure of schools and non-essential businesses. For these regions, it is therefore a return to the same type of pause and lock-down in January, summed up the Prime Minister. These targeted measures will be in effect from Thursday, April 1, 8 p.m. until April 12. This pause is decreed on the recommendations of public health, said François Legault. Teleworking remains compulsory.

In 1897, Amédée Laurendeau carried out carpentry work in the basement of his house located in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. It was around 1920 that he moved into a new workshop adjoining his house to make general carpentry. Almost 20 years later, he died and it was his 2 sons Thaddée and Albert who took over the reins of carpentry. They registered the name "Laurendeau et Frères" in the early 1940s. Little by little, the workshop was transformed into a manufacture of doors and windows sold mainly in the region. During the last years prior to Thaddée's sale in 1974, around twenty workers could be employed in the factory during peak periods of activities.
This year, Lorendo Portes et Fenêtres celebrates its 100th anniversary! Since 1920, Lorendo has been finetuning its processes, products and services!
