At a press conference on Wednesday, Premier François Legault announced an expansion of the orange COVID-19 zone to five of the province's regions and promised to present a plan to gradually reopen sports. As for Quebec's curfew, the premier suggested the situation is a bit more complex.\nOfficials' considerations about the curfew, he said, will depend on a number of factors, including "the evolution of the [COVID-19 virus] variant and the effects of March break in the days ahead."\nEditor's Choice: Montrealers 'May Be Seeing A Third Wave' Of COVID-19, Drouin Says\n\nIs there a timeline for the lifting of Quebec's curfew?\nNo. Legault did state that he imagines lifting curfew when "vulnerable people" have received their COVID-19 vaccines, but he did not provide a timeline.\nAt the time of writing, most regions are only accepting appointments for vaccine doses from people aged 80 and up.\nIn Montreal, Laval and the Côte-Nord, the age is 70.\n"It's difficult to predict exactly where we'll be. We know we have a few difficult weeks ahead of us," Legault said, later adding that this period of difficulty could last two to four weeks.\n\nWhat are the curfew hours across Quebec?\nQuebec's 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew first went into effect on January 9 for what was supposed to be a period of four weeks.\nCe soir, on a annoncé que certaines régions allaient passer au palier orange dès lundi prochain. Si on veut que ça marche, c’est important de suivre les consignes. C’est important de ne pas se rassembler et de garder ses distances.
