Patterson implements curfew to help flatten the curve

Posted at 2:06 PM, Mar 31, 2020

Starting tomorrow, there will be a nightly curfew for all citizens in Patterson.

Patterson Police Chief Garrett S. Grogan says the curfew will be from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. until the end of the month. If necessary, it may be extended beyond that, he said.

"We're trying to flatten the curve," Grogan said. "The number of cases keeps growing in St. Mary, and we feel this will help protect our citizens and prevent the spread. We're asking people to stay in, stop the social gatherings. We're just trying to flatten the curve."

Here's a letter from the chief and the mayor about it:
