GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — For anyone in Gadsden County wanting time go out, they'll have to keep an eye on the clock a little longer.

Commissioners voted to keep the curfew and mandatory mask mandate in place for another week.

This time, the commissioners indicated an end to the mandate and curfew.

Now that there's a testing site in the county, commissioners say a low positive rate for Gadsden is what it'll take to see some change.

The curfew is nightly from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m.

So far, no one has been arrested for breaking the resolution and law enforcement says the people in Gadsden have been happy to comply.
