Tsuut’ina First Nation has yet to see its first case of COVID-19 but with nearly 3,000 cases in neighbouring Calgary, the reserve is on high alert.
On Saturday, a new emergency curfew law for the First Nation came into effect, granting peace officers and police the power to fine those who venture out between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. during the state of emergency, or apprehend them or order them to return home.
The curfew, which has been in place for two weeks, 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.
A Friday update from Tsuut’ina Nation Emergency Management said that while many have respected the curfew, some have not.
