At least 100 people gather in Downtown Chico to protest the new Coronavirus Curfew in California.

We're going to stand up and make a point" that protest... peaceful for the most part... some people wore masks, others didn't.

Between the hours of 10 p-m and 5 a-m... unless leaving for a meal to go & work & or other essential services.

The goal - to curb the covid-19 spike & as for whether it will work?

Many people hope so... & like sarah yarges... whose family is watching cases surge in the midwest.: "am i for a curfew?

No - but then again when i'm seeing what's going on back home.

It kind of makes you think twice."

"if the numbers are going up the way they are - something has to happen.

Gonna have to adapt, like we've been adapting since march."
