BLANC-SABLON - JANUARY 12, 2021 - Lower North Shore Residents Respect the Curfew
CFBS was speaking by email this morning with officer Guy Pinard, of the local Sûreté du Québec in Blanc-Sablon. He informed us that since the province wide curfew began on Saturday, January 9th, there were no health infractions issued on the Lower North Shore for not respecting the provincial curfew of 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
Officer Pinard also wanted to thank all citizens on Lower North Shore for their collaboration in respecting the rules, mentioning that our streets locally have been empty at night.
Keep in mind that not following the public health directives regarding the provincial curfew could be costly, fines can range from $1000 to $6000 locally if you are caught in violation.
Here is a look at the new restrictions and what's open and what's closed during the four-week curfew that is expected to end on February 8, 2021:
