City extends curfew to include tonight from 10:00pm to 5:00am 

Curfew goes into effect tonight in an abundance of caution

 

Racine –  Mayor Cory Mason issued an emergency declaration today extending last night’s city wide curfew to include tonight from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM tomorrow.

“Again, we are issuing this curfew out of an abundance of caution. Last night was calm, and I appreciate the cooperation of our residents who have marched and demonstrated peacefully, and who have rejected the agitators from outside the community in doing so. The goal is to keep people off of the streets and sidewalks in the nighttime hours,” said Mayor Cory Mason.

Between the hours of 10:00pm and 5:00am, it is expected that travel is on streets and sidewalks is limited to going to your house or your workplace or attend to personal needs like getting medication from a pharmacy. The order is not requiring businesses to close. Many manufactures and other businesses operate 24 hours. Employees are legally permitted to travel to and from work under this order.
