New York City's 8 p.m. ET curfew will start tonight and will remain in place for the rest of the week, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The curfew will remain until 5 a.m. ET the next morning each day through Sunday.
“We will not tolerate violence of any kind. We will not tolerate attacks on police officers. We will not tolerate hatred being created,” de Blasio said.
The mayor asked residents to stand up for their communities.
“When people come to a swath of midtown Manhattan to attack luxury stores, that does not represent the values of New York City. We won’t accept that, it doesn’t speak for us and therefore we will stop it,” de Blasio said.
“I know we can overcome this, I know we can,” he added.
Reopening after the pandemic will move forward on Monday.
