Special Curfew Exceptions for Separated Parents

On December 31, 2021, a new curfew came into force and effect for an indeterminate period of time from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

The pandemic has been an extremely difficult period for everybody. It has been particularly challenging for children and separated parents who share parenting responsibilities all while trying to navigate the ever-evolving COVID-related restrictions, home schooling, limited gatherings, and curfew.

For parents with shared parenting time, below are exceptions to the recently implemented curfew, therefore you are allowed to be out of the house if you fall under one of the following:

  1. A parent accompanying a child to the home of their other parent;
  2. A person complying with a court judgment or summons to court or to exercise custodyrights as a parent;
  3. A parent taking their sick child to the hospital;
  4. A parent accompanying an adolescent child to work.

In light of these exceptions, parents are free to exercise their shared responsibilities without increased concern of violating COVID-related restrictions for the duration of the current curfew.
