Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued a curfew in some areas and imposed a state of emergency in Virginia.
The curfew applies to Alexandria and Arlington with limited exceptions, the governor said.
He wrote: “At the request of @AlexandriaVAGov and @ArlingtonVA, I am declaring a 6PM to 6AM curfew in these jurisdictions, with limited exceptions. I am also issuing a State of Emergency in Virginia, so we can continue to respond.”
The move comes as protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol building, forcing a lockdown. Photos
