Elementary schools are back today, and after our first weekend with the curfew, police handed out about 200 tickets across the province Saturday night. Provincial police had targeted about 20 locations across Québec in response to protests against the curfew, in Montreal police (SPVM) said 17 tickets were handed out at a gathering in the plateau, no arrests were made. 

Apart from those violations, however, the force praised the public for its response to the rules set to be in effect for the next four weeks.

Deputy Prime Minister Geneviève Guilbault thanked Quebecers for respecting the curfew, which has been in effect since Saturday evening. On her Twitter account, the Minister of Public Security thanked citizens for their solidarity with health workers and the most vulnerable.

The curfew, which is applied every day between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., will remain in effect until February 8 inclusive.
