Legault Isn't Excluding The Possibility Of Moving Red Zone Curfew Back To 8 PM

At a Tuesday press conference, Premier François Legault assured red-zone residents that curfew will stay at 9:30 p.m., at least for now.

"We will not hesitate. If there is an increase, for example, in the number of cases in the coming days in Montreal, we're going to put the curfew back to 8 p.m.," said the premier.

"Not today, but we're not excluding this possibility." 

Legault cited health officials' desire to accommodate workers whose shifts end later, as well as people hoping to take advantage of spring weather with evening walks.

The Montreal area's curfew moved to 9:30 p.m. on March 17.
