The Quebec curfew will reportedly end on Monday

The Legault government believes that the peak of the Omicron wave has been reached.

TVA is reporting that the curfew currently in place across Quebec will end on Monday, Jan. 17. Unless the situation changes in the coming days, the report says, the Legault government is expected to announce this week that the public health measure will be lifted. They believe that the peak of the Omicron wave has been reached, based on the province’s hospitalization numbers.

This is the province’s second curfew during the pandemic, which lasts from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly, and was implemented on Dec. 31, 2021. The first lasted from Jan. 9 to May 28, 2021.

Quebec Premier François Legault also announced tonight that the province is going ahead with its plan to reopen schools on Monday.

“Good news! The public health department is in favour of opening primary and secondary schools next Monday, as planned. CEGEPs and universities will also be able to return in person.”
