Nova Scotia First Nation implements curfew amid coronavirus pandemic

Following an emergency meeting on Monday, Pictou Landing First Nation has decided to implement a community-wide curfew.

The First Nation won’t allow traffic in or out of its community from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., except for essential service workers, those working off-reserve and returning home or for an emergency.

Chief Andrea Paul and council posted the new “community curfew” guidelines to the First Nation’s Facebook page on Monday.

While the curfew is in effect, community members are allowed to go for walks but must remain in their homes from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. Security will be stationed at checkpoints entering the community, documenting anyone who comes and goes during the day.
