A First Nation in northwestern Ontario will be one of the first communities in the province to impose a curfew and lockdown.

Netimizaagamig Nishnaabeg First Nation, formerly known as Pic Mobert, is located about 360 kilometres east of Thunder Bay.

The community said it would impose the curfew between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., starting on Monday. Nobody would be allowed out of their homes, except for emergency medical reasons.

A lockdown of the community would also start at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, meaning only those who reside in the community can be there after that time.

Netimizaagamig Nishnaabeg is accessed by a single road, connecting it to Highway 17. The nearest community is White River, about 35 kilometres to the east.
