Some people were not happy about the COVID-19 message sent out via the emergency alert system, usually reserved for Amber alerts or natural disasters.

Quebec similarly sent out an emergency wireless alert for COVID-19 recently, reiterating the province’s nightly curfew, which requires residents to stay home from 8pm to 5am.
