Alderman Reilly joined Mayor Lightfoot and other city officials this weekend to discuss the events that occurred during the nighttime hours (Alderman Reilly’s comments begin at 41:30). Alderman Reilly also joined Pete McMurray on WGN Radio to discuss the events of this past weekend.

The City of Chicago under Mayor Lightfoot and Commissioner of Public Health Dr. Allison Arwady have issued a curfew for all residents and visitors, effective from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily, until further notice.  

The curfew is enforceable by law and restricts people from remaining in any public place – including, but not limited to, streets and highways, and common areas of schools, hospitals, office buildings and shops; or on the premises of any establishment – defined as any privately owned business operated for a profit to which the public is invited, within the City of Chicago during curfew hours. The curfew excludes persons engaged in essential activities as defined in the Municipal Code, Order 2020-3 (listed here under Section 2.5).

The Chicago Police Department will enforce the curfew through measures including warnings, fines and/or arrests. In addition, a small contingent of the National Guard will be deployed to maintain a limited presence and support Chicago police in order to ensure there will not be a repeat of Saturday night.

Alderman Reilly strongly encourages private homes and residential buildings to lock their exterior doors and to not allow visitors. Please return home by 9:00 p.m. after performing essential activities.

If you see something, say something. Report suspicious behavior and activity, and call 911 if there is an emergency or immediate threat. If the situation is not an emergency, you can also submit tips to CPD online.
