Montreal and Laval are going back to 8 p.m. curfew

Bad news if you are living in Montreal and Laval.

Premier François Legault announced this afternoon that Quebec is prolonging an existing lockdown in four cities (Quebec City, Lévis, Beauce, and Gatineau) and will be bringing back an 8 p.m. curfew in Montreal and Laval.

The measures take effect Sunday, Legault said, citing that with cases continuing to soar, Quebec is extending special emergency measures until April 18.

"When we say that it's in the community, it's everywhere and it's in all age groups" in those cities, Legault said.

"The situation is serious in these places."

Quebec public health recorded 1,609 new COVID-19 cases over the past day, the province’s highest daily increase in 76 days.
