"Chief and Council understand that this may cause an inconvenience to some. However, we must take all steps to prevent COVID 19 from being brought in from the high-risk zone of Calgary. This is a first approach on protecting our borders,"
Over the weekend, Tsuut'ina Nation Chief and Council enacted an emergency curfew law, which grants police or peace officers, the power to fine or apprehend individuals, who venture out between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Even though the Nation has zero cases of COVID-19, the Calgary zone currently has 3,104.
Breaking the curfew means a fine of $150 for a first offence, $300 for a second, and $500 for a third.
The curfew forbids residents or visitors on the First Nation from leaving home unless to travel to and from work, or for an emergency trip to a health-care facility.
