Quebec public health has confirmed two new deaths related to H1N1 virus, bringing the death toll in Quebec to six.
At a press conference, 123 new cases of the virus were confirmed brining the Quebec total of confirmed cases to 1088.
Twenty more people with the virus have been hospitalized since Monday, bringing the total number of hospitalized people to 154.
Michel Dore, the government co-ordinator for civil security, said there is no reason to change vacation plans.
He said the only time plans should change is when kids, or parents, display symptoms, in which case they should stay home.
He re-iterated that hand-washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow and staying home when symptoms appear are the best ways to combat the H1N1 virus.
