The city of Greenwood’s curfew is set to expire Monday morning. Until then, the curfew will remain in place with a few modifications, as adopted by the City Council. 

Effective Tuesday, the curfew hours will be from midnight until 5 a.m.

Convenience stores and restaurants will be allowed to stay open past curfew, and residents will be allowed to patronize these places past curfew, Ward 3 and council president Ronnie Stevenson said.

Residents are also allowed to be out past curfew to go to and from work and for emergency matters.

Stevenson emphasized that residents should not be out and about past curfew.

During its Tuesday meeting, the City Council voted unanimously to end the curfew on Monday morning. Greenwood's curfew has been in place since early April as a social restriction measure to curb the spread of COVID-19.
