The article claims such is coming about because "the COVID-19 pandemic is now out of control in Quebec and [we are] faced with a worrisome increase in hospitalizations."

We're told that government officials are getting together this Tuesday to discuss this upcoming lockdown and make sure it is in a "more orderly fashion than last spring."

The "total lockdown" is expected to begin as of Saturday, January 9.

And the possibility of imposing curfews in Quebec during this time is also mentioned in La Presse's report.

"The Public Health Department has also proposed that a curfew be imposed. It remains to be seen how long it will last: we are talking about 8 or 9 p.m. until the next morning."

The government will supposedly announce these new measures on Wednesday.
