Siksika First Nation imposes curfew due to COVID-19 –

SIKSIKA FIRST NATION- Clusters of COVID-19 cases on the Siksika Nation east of Calgary have prompted the community’s leaders to impose a curfew.

Chief Ouray Crowfoot says in a video message that as of Thursday there were 21 known COVID-19 cases with links to the community, and that five separate and unrelated case clusters had been uncovered in the previous 12 days.

The curfew applies from 11 p.m to 5 a.m., with exceptions that can be made on an as-needed basis for work or other reasons.
