HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — An organizer of a group of truck drivers protesting COVID-19 mandates around the Washington, D.C., area says they will head to California next.

The Herald-Mail reports that during a livestream of the People’s Convoy nightly rally on Sunday, organizer Mike Landis read a list of measures aimed at controlling COVID-19 in California. He said stopping those measures is more important than repealing other measures elsewhere.

The group has stayed at the Hagerstown Speedway for the last three weeks, regularly traveling along the beltway and in downtown Washington to protest COVID-19 mandates.

Landis didn't say when they would leave, but he invited people to meet up Monday before a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, before heading West.
