Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird announced that no curfew will be in place Tuesday night.

A curfew was issued for the past two nights in response to the violence this weekend after peaceful assemblies to protest the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota were disrupted by a small group of individuals, resulting in injuries, destruction of property, and arrests.

The Mayor will discuss the curfew decision at a news conference at 3:30 p.m.

The news conference will include a briefing on the city’s response to COVID-19.
