Detroit city officials expect an 8 p.m. curfew will remain in place for a couple more days.

The curfew was put in place this week in response to confrontations between large groups of protesters and police.   

Dozens of protesters have been detained for violating the curfew. Although on Wednesday night, police did not enforce the curfew and protesters continued to march peacefully well after the curfew.

Saginaw Mayor Floyd Kloc has ordered travel restrictions in the city to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The order issued on Thursday prohibits travel on county or local roads within the city between 9pm and 6am. The order will be in place for the next week.
