MONTREAL – Quebec Premier Francois Legault is imposing a provincewide 8 p.m. curfew beginning Saturday as a way to halt surging COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations.

The province will become the first in the country to impose such a drastic measure to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Legault says the curfew will last between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. for four weeks, until Feb. 8.
