Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings- Blake announced Sunday morning the area curfew has been lifted. In a statement the Mayor said:
Effective immediately, I have rescinded my order instituting a city-wide curfew. My goal has always been to not have the curfew in place a single day longer than was necessary.
My number one priority in instituting a curfew was to ensure the public peace, safety, health and welfare of Baltimore citizens. It was not an easy decision, but one I felt was necessary to help our city restore calm.
I want to thank the people of Baltimore for their patience during this difficult time as we continue to come together to heal and restore our City.
