The local state of emergency and curfew in Riviera Beach will stay in place a little longer.
Mayor Ronnie Felder signed the state of emergency due to the potential threat of violence from protests in the George Floyd case. Floyd is the man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last month. His controversial death and arrests of four officers prompted protests nationwide.
During the state of emergency, the sale of guns, ammo, and alcohol is prohibited.
The curfew runs from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The state of emergency can be extended for another 72 hours by city council, the mayor’s office said.
The city of West Palm Beach is also under an extended state of emergency.
