Nearby Counties Begin Mandatory Curfews

Curfews are also now being imposed in several nearby counties as COVID-19 cases continue to rise. Gibson, a town in Scotland County has put into effect a curfew from 10 PM to 6 AM. They have said the curfew is largely meant for the children living there so they “don’t roam” late at night while schools are closed. Robeson County also has a curfew but from 8 PM to 6 AM. However, this does not apply to ” religious gatherings, travel to and from work, or civic duties.” Town leaders ask their citizens abide by these new restrictions. It has not been made clear how the curfews will be enforced or what the consequences there will be for breaking it.
