 IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING THE CURFEW According to the WGRZ report):

  • There are NO PLANNED PROTESTS IN ERIE COUNTY THAT THE COUNTY IS AWARE OF, so if you hear of a group holding a protest, it would be wise to refrain.
  •  Essential Workers are exempt from the curfew but MUST show Essential Worker I.D. if stopped

Polencarz said this, regarding volunteers who came out to clean up after last night, according to WGRZ News:

“What we’re seeing this morning defines us as a community.”

Mayor Byron Brown commented as well (per WGRZ news)

 "I want to say very clearly to those people, you did not hurt the City of Buffalo.  You did not hurt Erie County.  You hurt small businesses," said Brown.  "We saw the best of people and we saw the worst of people."
