City of Reno issues mandatory curfew order, effective at 5:30 p.m.
Out of an abundance of caution for public safety, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve has issued a mandatory curfew within the Reno city limits starting at 5:30 p.m. tonight, Sunday, May 31. The curfew will go into effect beginning at 5:30 p.m. this evening and shall expire Monday, June 1 at 5 a.m. unless further extended.
During the hours of the curfew only residents that have an essential reason to be out (i.e. people traveling to/from work, a trip to the grocery store, medical personnel, media, etc.) are permitted to be out past 5:30 p.m. in the Reno City limits.
Residents are asked to please avoid the downtown area, and to adhere to the curfew to help protect the safety of our community. As a precaution, there may be a heavy police and National Guard presence in downtown Reno throughout the evening.
The City of Reno also issued a mandatory curfew order last night, May 30, and Mayor Schieve issued a Declaration of the Existence of a Local State of Emergency.
If you missed it, you can watch the Sunday, May 31 press conference that was held at the Reno Police Station at noon (12 p.m.).
