What time are the curfews in and around L.A. tonight (Monday, June 1)?
Los Angeles and surrounding cities in Southern California have issued curfews for Monday.
The L.A. County website offered this reasoning: “The effects of public calamity caused disaster and extreme peril to the safety of people and property. Because of the dangers which often occur under cover of darkness and the difficulty to preserve public safety during these hours, a curfew was ordered, as allowed by Government Code Section 8634.”
Under curfew, residents should remain in their homes and stay off public streets and areas. L.A. County listed the following exemptions from the curfew: “Peace officers, fire fighters and National Guard or other military personnel deployed to the area, individuals traveling to and from work, people experiencing homelessness and without access to a viable shelter and individuals seeking medical treatment.”
Here are the times for the curfews.
Los Angeles County: 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday
From the county website: “Effective as of 6 p.m., Sunday, May 31, 2020, and until further notification, all incorporated and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County shall adhere to staying off public streets, avenues, boulevards, places, walkways, alleys, parks or any public areas or unimproved private realty within Los Angeles County, between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following day.”
If you are in L.A. county and your local curfew order is later than this, you must follow the county order, the announcement said. If your local order is earlier, that one takes precedence. The example from the website: “If a resident’s local curfew order is 8 p.m., the 6 p.m. county curfew supersedes it; if the local order is 4 p.m., the local order still stands.”
As of now, Metro Bus and Rail says it will continue normal service. Foothill Transit will continue to pick up riders until 8 p.m.
Los Angeles city: 6 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday
Note: The city initially announced that the curfew would begin at 6 p.m. At 3:44 p.m., an alert went out on mobile phones saying it would begin at 5 p.m. The city’s website was updated with that information a few minutes later, then changed back to 6 p.m. L.A. County confirmed via Twitter that the mobile alert saying 5 p.m. was sent in error.
“A city-wide curfew will again be in place again tonight from 6:00pm until 6:00am Tuesday. All residents must stay home, indoors and off the streets,” the Los Angeles Police Department account tweeted Monday afternoon. “Violators will be subject to arrest.”
Anaheim (Orange County): 6 p.m. Monday to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday
