The Montreal Canadiens will be able to play home games despite the Quebec government's imposition of a curfew aimed at curbing COVID-19 in the province.

Legault noted that no fans would be permitted at the Bell Centre but said, "Quebecers want to see hockey games". Players and staff will be tested daily and are not allowed to visit other people off the ice.

Premier Francois Legault said the measures will take effect Saturday and remain in place until at least February 8.

During his Wednesday evening press conference, Premier François Legault confirmed the Canadiens would be able to bypass the government's 8 pm curfew to play home games for the upcoming National Hockey League season. "It's done completely safely, and they have the means to pay for that safety".

The Canadiens will conclude their training camp at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard this weekend before kicking off the 2021 National Hockey League season against the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Wednesday. After playing their first six road games, their first home game at the Bell Center will be on January 28 against the Calgary Flames.

The Quebec government has given the green light for Canadian NHL teams to travel into the province to play hockey.
