Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a citywide curfew on Wednesday after President Donald Trump’s fans stormed the U.S. Capitol during the accreditation of the 2020 governmental election.
The curfew will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday and remains in effect up until 6 a.m. Thursday.
” During the hours of the curfew, no individual, other than individuals designated by the mayor, shall stroll, bike, run, loiter, stand or motor by automobile or other mode of transportation upon any street, street, park or other public place within the District,” Bowser stated in her order.
” The curfew enforced by the Mayor’s Order will not use to essential employees, including working media with their outlet-issued qualifications, when engaged in essential functions, including travel to and from their vital work,” the mayor included.
Bowser bought similar curfews over the summertime during the prevalent Black Lives Matter protests.
