The city of Patterson has issued a "Dusk-to-Dawn" curfew for its residents.

The curfew was issued to help "flatten the curve" and minimize the increasing number of positive COVID-19 test results.

The curfew requires that all residents be inside of their homes "with NO social gathering" outside the home.

The curfew will be in effect until the end of Governor Edwards' latest stay-at-home order: April 30, 2020.
