Governor Doug Ducey Issues 8pm Curfew Statewide

by | May 31, 2020 | Government & Regulations

In response to recent protests in Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has imposed an 8:00 p.m. curfew for the entire state. The curfew begins immediately and ends on Monday, June 8 at 5:00 a.m. unless extended further. “The curfew will be in place from 8:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. and shall expire on Monday, June 8, 2020 at 5:00 a.m. unless further extended.”

The curfew will be lifted each morning at 5 a.m. according to the governors press release.

Ducey first announced the emergency declaration and curfew in a few tweets, saying that the decision was at the request of local leaders and law enforcement.

Ducey’s announcement follows Saturday night’s unrest, which caused police departments in both Phoenix and Scottsdale to issue orders of unlawful assembly.

The Phoenix Police Department made more than 100 arrests following Saturday’s unrest.
