Mayor Strickland announced a new Emergency Order that included a curfew for Memphis.
Earlier, in an effort to help keep things peaceful, the Mayor announced that starting the evening of June 1, a 10pm to 6am curfew would be instituted. This curfew will be continued as long as necessary to insure safety for all citizens. What this means is if you are out during these hours, you can be arrested with the exception of essential workers and those experiencing a medical emergency.
The order prohibits people from being in the streets or on public property, unless traveling to and from work, for health, or safety. Businesses will not be required to close or change their hours at this time. More details about this curfew can be seen on all major local networks. To see the Executive Order, go here.
