City-Wide Curfew to Go into Affect Today at 10 PM

BALTIMORE, Md. (April 28, 2015)—Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has instituted a city-wide curfew that will go into effect today, starting at 10:00 pm. The curfew will be in place for seven days, at which point the Mayor will determine if additional days are needed.

Details of the curfew are as follows:

  • The night-time curfew applies for all citizens (with exceptions of emergency personnel and those commuting to and from work for essential functions, including students traveling to/from classes).
  • Non-essential business operations should be suspended from 10:00 pm until 5:00 am. This includes restaurants, entertainment venues, and bars, which should be closed during these times. Visitors and patrons should plan enough travel time before the curfew begins.
  • For essential business operations, employees traveling to and from work during the curfew should have a valid picture ID (presumably a driver’s license) and a document from their employer stating their need to work during curfew hours with dates and employee hours.
  • Drivers or individuals may be stopped by law enforcement and should be prepared with the information above to avoid arrest. Violation of the curfew is a misdemeanor.
