Elizabeth City Mayor Bettie Parker declared a State of Emergency that was amended on April 27 to impose a city-wide curfew from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. This statement is to clarify that the curfew is not applicable to and will not be enforced against working journalists, as long as those journalists are actively involved in covering the events in Elizabeth City, and are not involved in protest activities. I trust this communication clarifies the City's position in this matter.
