TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Leon County leaders have voted to reinstate the county's nightly curfew.

Tuesday evening, county officials voted to reinstate the curfew during a remote meeting.

Previously, the curfew was lifted after Governor Ron DeSantis enacted a safer-at-home order statewide.

Starting on Wednesday at 11 p.m., the curfew will again go into effect, according to Leon County commissioners. That curfew will run from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily.

During the curfew, residents should only conduct essential services and activities during that window, such as go to work, get food, or walk a dog.

Leaders will issued an amended proclamation on Wednesday. You can read the proclamation below:
