The curfew means “it shall be prohibited for any person, other than exempt individuals (public safety, media and industries personnel) to appear in public in the territory subject to the curfew but not limited to streets, highways, alleys, sidewalks, vacant lots, parks, public buildings or any other public places in all or a delineated part of incorporated Newnan during the state hours of the curfew.”
“Any individual violating this ordinance, upon conviction, shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 per violation or imprisonment not to exceed sixty (60) days or both.”
