UPDATE, Friday, Oct. 7:
The curfew is lifted in Orange County
at 2 p.m. Friday, and ended for Seminole County at 2 p.m.
The curfew set Thursday in Orange and Seminole counties is still in place.
Orange County mayor Teresa Jacobs said Thursday at a press conference, “We felt the best move was to impose a mandatory curfew to make sure that people are taking this seriously.”
In both counties, the curfew continues until 7 a.m. Saturday.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the curfew will be enforced and anyone without a legitimate reason to be on the road will be arrested.
Hopefully everyone was able to find plenty to do/read/eat/drink earlier in the week and bring it home.
Update 11:57 a.m. Friday:
Curfew is still in effect; Orange County government will reassess "this afternoon."
