SALT LAKE CITY — Mayor Erin Mendenhall's curfew remains in effect until at least 6 a.m. Monday.

City crews were out assessing damage from the violent protests that rocked downtown.

"The streets of Salt Lake City are quiet and calm this morning," the mayor said at a Sunday morning news conference.

She urged residents to continue to comply with the curfew, including resisting efforts to clean up the damage and vandalism.

The curfew prohibits gatherings in public spaces, but allows businesses to remain open. People can still go out for food, visit businesses (which can remain open), but they cannot congregate. The curfew is city-wide.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said 21 officers were injured in Saturday's protests, including one who was hit with a baseball bat. The chief said 41 people were arrested.
