Cars line up Friday at a coronavirus testing site at the University of Texas at El Paso. The area has seen a surge in cases in recent weeks, and a two-week curfew is now in effect in El Paso County.

The judge said he was "left with no choice" but to impose a countywide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. He noted El Paso County has seen a 160% increase in its positivity rate in the last three weeks.
