Protesters defy curfew in Huntington Beach

Governor Gavin Newsom announced on Thursday (November 18) a curfew on social gatherings and other non-essential activities. Beginning on Saturday, the stay-at-home order prohibits non-essential business from 10pm until 5am each day.

One attendee to the protest in Huntington Beach said he'd like to see "curfews go away" and that there are "too many restrictions as is".

Signs of a resurgent public health crisis have emerged more starkly across the country, with officials forced to retreat from tentative steps to normalize daily life during what had been a brief lull in the pandemic.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a "strong recommendation" on Thursday that Americans refrain from traveling for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.

- I'd like to see curfews go away. And again, the whole blanket curfew thing. I still-- I don't agree with that. I think there's too many restrictions as is.

Obviously, a lot of people don't agree with what our governor and our city officials are doing. But I prefer to see something maybe done a little bit different. But curfews is just a little too far.
