Peaceful protests turned chaotic and destructive in parts of Southern California this weekend.

Here’s what we know about where mandatory curfews are continuing Monday, June 1, and into Tuesday.

Both the city and county of L.A. are under curfew beginning at 6 p.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Tuesday, Mayor Eric Garcetti said. He also issued this statement Monday about the continuing protests:

“The focus needs to stay on taking down systemic racism and ending senseless violence against Black men and women — and we can’t let a small number of people hijack that movement by putting lives in danger and destroying property. We are keeping the curfew in place tonight to protect everyone’s safety and help our first responders keep the peace.”

L.A. County sent out emergency alerts via text message on Monday afternoon about the 6 p.m. curfew — and then, to much confusion, sent out another alert just minutes later saying the curfew had been moved to 5 p.m. However, Mayor Garcetti clarified later that the city's curfew, at least, was still 6 p.m.

Here is the county's curfew order, in full:

Although the order is in effect for the entire county, some cities have instituted their own curfews that begin earlier. (If you live in a city where the curfew time is different from the county's, the stricter curfew stands.) Here's our running list, below:


A citywide curfew begins at 5 p.m. and runs through 6 a.m. Tuesday, June 2.


A curfew previously set to start in the city’s business district now extends citywide. That means the citywide curfew starts at 1 p.m. and currently lasts until 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 2.

“The curfews prohibit anyone from being upon public streets, sidewalks, alleys, parks or any public place,” city officials said in a press release.


Culver City has announced its own curfew starting Monday at 4 p.m., lasting until Tuesday at 5:30 a.m.

The city is also halting Culver CityBus service starting at 8 p.m. According to the city, anyone who needs a ride home after that time should call the CulverCityBus hotline: 310-253-6500.


Glendale's curfew begins at 5 p.m. through 6 a.m. Tuesday.


A curfew in the city’s business districts begins at 1 p.m. today. A citywide curfew begins at 1 p.m.

Big Blue Bus service was also set to be suspended starting at 12 p.m., the city announced. Service will resume on June 2, although the city said that decision was "subject to change."

Mayor Kevin McKeown said Sunday was “one of the most distressing days in Santa Monica history” and drew a sharp distinction between peaceful protesters and what he called the “organized criminals” who took advantage of the situation.

“On Sunday, Santa Monica honored and respected, and ultimately protected, a peaceful protest against institutional racism. Yet our solidarity with those honoring George Floyd was betrayed, as was his memory, by opportunistic and organized criminals. Taking advantage of the protest as a diversion, they stole not only goods, but jobs, and challenged the resilience of our business community, which is poised for recovery from the ongoing pandemic… We know better than to let the looters obscure the message of the protesters, who have indeed been heard. What a small and selfish criminal element has done instead is to bring our community more closely together.”


Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia announced a curfew has been extended for the city's business districts starting at 1 p.m. Monday, with a larger citywide curfew set for 4 p.m.


A citywide curfew begins at 4 p.m. Monday in West Hollywood, Mayor Lindsay Horvath announced.


Cities in nearby counties also instituted curfews over the weekend, and could continue orders today. As of Monday morning, curfews have been announced in the following cities:
