"All I know for sure is there may be a curfew each night starting at 2000."[/size].

Where have you seen that?  I just read two reports that say there isn't a curfew already scheduled.  Another government flip flop?[/font]

There is NO curfew yet but it could change if the things that the state of emergency have set in place do not stem the spread of the coronavirus.
