The curfew will start Sunday from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Monday. 

During the curfew, no one is allowed to travel on Minneapolis and St. Paul streets or public places, except for first responders, members of the media, people going back and forth to work, individuals seeking emergency care or fleeing danger, and people experiencing homelessness. 

Curfews are not limited to Minneapolis and St. Paul. Mayors and local governments across the state can issue their own curfews. 

“The curfew on Friday and Saturday night allowed our law enforcement to target those who meant to do harm to our communities,” Walz said in a statement. “Law enforcement made several arrests and seized weapons, narcotics, long guns, handguns, magazines and knives. We have reason to believe that bad actors continue to infiltrate the rightful protests of George Floyd’s murder, which is why we are extending the curfew by one day.”

All Minnesotans in Minneapolis and St. Paul are urged to comply voluntarily and comply with law enforcement instructions. Peace officers will enforce the curfew and arrest those who refuse to comply.
