Governor Tim Walz announced midday Monday that a curfew for Minneapolis and St. Paul will be extended the next two nights, though the timing will be adjusted. 

Over the weekend, the curfew was from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The adjustments for Monday and Tuesday nights will see the curfew enforced from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. 

There were 276 arrests made in the Twin Cities Sunday into early Monday, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. That includes 150 protesters who were arrested near I-35W and Washington Ave., as they were surrounded by law enforcement and peacefully taken into custody for breaking curfew. 

Since Friday, there have been 481 arrests related to protesting and rioting in the metro area. 

"It's June 1. It's still the middle of a pandemic," said Walz, asking anyone with symptoms who is planning to protest to "please isolate" and stay home. 

It is not yet clear if freeways and highways going in and out of Minneapolis and St. Paul will be closed as they were the past two nights.
