QUEBEC (WCAX) - If you’re thinking of heading across the border to celebrate New Year’s Eve, be aware there will be a nighttime curfew.

On Thursday, top leaders in Quebec made the announcement as COVID cases and hospitalizations rise in the province.

The curfew will be in effect from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. starting Friday. It’s unclear how long this will go on for.

Quebec is the only Canadian province to issue a curfew over the coronavirus.

Also starting Friday, all Quebec restaurants will be limited to takeout only and indoor private gatherings are banned.

Schools won’t reopen to in-person classes until mid-January.
