Source: CNN

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti has extended a curfew, which initially applied only to downtown, to the whole city.

The curfew requires everyone within the City of Los Angeles to stay indoors tonight, from 8 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

“I will always protect Angelenos’ right to make their voices heard and we can lead the movement against racism without fear of violence or vandalism,” Garcetti said in a statement. “The vast majority of people taking to the streets are doing it peacefully, powerfully, and with reverence for the sacred cause they’re fighting for. This curfew is in place to protect their safety — and the safety of all who live and work in our city.”

At least 25 cities across 16 states have now imposed curfews.

DENVER — A third protest for George Floyd has drawn thousands of people to downtown Denver Saturday after two straight days of what started as peaceful protests devolved into violence.

Saturday's rally continued as Mayor Michael Hancock announced that a curfew has been implemented and will be in place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Saturday through Monday. He also said the National Guard will be in place to enforce the curfew.

Exemptions for the curfew include travel for essential activities needed for health and safety and employees traveling to and from work. A fine of up to $999 and/or one year in jail are the possible penalties if caught violating the curfew, the mayor said.

Confrontations between protesters and Chicago police intensified in the downtown area overnight during continued marches over the death of George Floyd.

By the time the demonstrators dispersed, from Chicago’s downtown area early Saturday, windows of several Loop businesses were broken, leaving shards of glass strewn on the streets and sidewalks. Garbage cans and flower pots were also toppled over.

By about 4:30 a.m., a truck from a board-up company could be seen outside a State Street Old Navy store, which had its windows damaged. A group of people could also be seen inside a Champs sports apparel store near State and Madison streets assessing damage from a broken front window there.

A work crew was shoveling broken glass outside Jewelers Row at Madison and Wabash Avenue, where a couple of businesses had their front windows shattered or cracked.

NYC to start reopening June 8, Cuomo allows certain upstate regions to move into Phase Two

Source: New York Daily News

New York City can start down the long road to economic recovery on June 8, barring any major change in the coronavirus numbers, Gov Cuomo announced Friday.

As the coronavirus crisis continues to wane, the city should be able to join the rest of the state and reopen construction and manufacturing businesses in two weeks, the governor said during a press briefing in New Rochelle.


The governor also announced that five upstate regions can enter the second phase of the state’s reopening plan on Friday, a move welcomed by frustrated officials.


The second step of the state’s plan will see salons and barbers begin offering limited services and retail stores and offices open with strict capacity limits and other safety measures in place.
