VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The City of Virginia Beach has confirmed that as of Thursday afternoon, there are no plans to extend the curfew as the nation continues into its second week of protests after the death of George Floyd.

Many of the demonstrations have been peaceful and continue to serve as awareness of the issues of police brutality and unfair treatment.

Curfews were set as a result of the property damages, injuries, and violence that ensued after groups gathered to march. Richmond, Hampton, and Virginia Beach are a few of the cities in Virginia that set curfews.
