Individuals traveling for healthcare or work are exempt.

SUMTER, S.C. — A curfew for Sumter goes into effect on April 8, Wednesday night.

The curfew will go from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. and will restrict travel through the city of Sumter unless you are going to and from work or traveling for healthcare.
