A daytime curfew is in place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for all school-aged students, according to a Facebook post.

Also, the nighttime curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. normally in place for children has been extended to adults.

Adults still can conduct any life-supporting activities and essential business activities during the curfew, the mayor said.
