Mayor Hancock announced on Colorado Matters this morning that he will extend the citywide curfew imposed over the weekend through Thursday. The curfew will start at 9 p.m. and end at 5 a.m.

A march honoring George Floyd's death is planned for tonight at 5 p.m. at the State Capitol.

Hancock first imposed curfew on Saturday following two days of protests that included some rioting. Over the weekend, Gov. Polis called in the National Guard to assist Denver police.
