PUEBLO — The COVID-19 curfew in Pueblo has been in effect for a month and the Police Department said they've seen just a handful of violators.
Only 30 people have been cited so far but there was a slight uptick over the Thanksgiving weekend.
"Right now, our infection rate is sky-high. We need to watch out for each other and watch out for ourselves and part of that is voluntary compliance with the curfew," Sgt. Franklyn Ortega said.
The curfew is from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each day. It is currently in place until Jan. 1, 2021.
If you are caught violating the curfew, you could face a $1,000 fine and a year in jail.
Essential workers are allowed to be out during the curfew.
