Quebec’s first night of curfew in photos

Quebec’s curfew intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 began on Saturday evening as the infection rate continues to surge in the province.

The provincewide curfew is in effect from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. for at least the next four weeks — until Feb. 8. Aside from a short list of essential exceptions, anyone out between those hours could face police questions and stiff fines ranging from $1,000 to $6,000.
