Minnesota governor Tim Walz announced the extension of the current curfew in place amid recent protests over the police-related death of George Floyd for Wednesday, June 3, and Thursday, June 4. The curfew will be in place between 22:00 and 04:00 (local time) in the twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul and in other cities as decided by local authorities. The governor also thanked Minnesotans for demonstrating peacefully during recent protests.

Further protests and associated unrest are likely in Minnesota in the near term.


George Floyd died while being arrested by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. The four arresting police officers were subsequently fired, and one has since been charged with murder. Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters gathered on May 26 to denounce the death and actions of the police officers. Clashes ensued between protesters and riot police; with demonstrators throwing bricks and projectiles at police and police property, and police responding with tear gas and rubber bullets as they attempted to disperse the crowds. Protests have since spread to a number of cities across the US.


Individuals in Minnesota and across metropolitan areas in the US are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
