All The LA County And City Curfews For Wednesday
Editor’s note: This post is no longer being updated. Click here for the latest information on local curfew orders as of Thursday, June 4.
As peaceful protests and civil unrest continue on Day 8 following the death of George Floyd, another round of curfews instituted by Los Angeles County officials and individual cities have been announced.
Here’s what we know about curfews for Wednesday, June 3, 2020.
LOS ANGELES COUNTY
After some confusion,* L.A. County officials have confirmed that Wednesday night's curfew goes into effect at 9 p.m. and lasts until 5 a.m. on Thursday, June 4. The L.A. Sheriff's Department, however, says it will not start enforcing the curfew until 10 p.m.
Either way, it's definitely a later curfew than we've seen in previous days.
Per the county, tonight's curfew DOES NOT apply to:
- peace officers
- National Guard or other military personnel deployed to the area
- emergency medical services personnel
- individuals traveling to and from work
- individuals working on a public work of improvement construction project
- credentialed media representatives involved in news gathering
- people experiencing homelessness and without access to a viable shelter
- individuals seeking medical treatment
REMINDER: Other cities within L.A. County may institute curfews that start earlier.
*Around noon, officials sent an emergency alert saying the curfew started at 9 p.m. Then, at 3:18 p.m., officials sent another emergency alert saying the curfew started at 10 p.m. L.A. County clarified this (sort of) in response to our Tweet.
Beverly Hills officials have announced two different curfews: one for business districts beginning at 1 p.m. today, the other a citywide curfew in effect at 4 p.m. Both orders expire at 6 a.m. Thursday.
A full list of the business district areas can be found here.
Burbank will adhere to the countywide curfew, which runs from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday. City officials had earlier said the curfew would start at 5 p.m. but changed their minds.
Culver City officials announced a citywide curfew from 6 p.m. Wednesday through 6 a.m. Thursday.
Homeless people in Culver City are exempt, according to the new order. The city's bus service will be suspended at 8 p.m. and resume after 6 a.m. Thursday.
City Manager John Nachbar also announced that 25 members of the National Guard would be deployed in the city this afternoon to protect the Westfield Culver City Mall. He explained the reason this way:
"During each of the past several evenings, there have been up to 100 cars at a time circling the Westfield Culver City Mall with persons attempting to gain access to vandalize and loot. Using significant resources, CCPD and local law enforcement partners have been successful in fighting off these criminal attempts, including using methods such as using buses to block mall parking lot entrances... The National Guard will only be deployed at the mall. Their mission will be to protect the mall. How long they remain deployed there depends on the security situation at the mall."
Garden Grove's curfew starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday and expires at 5 a.m. Thursday.
Glendale's curfew continues to be in effect from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday.
Long Beach will be under curfew from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday.
Santa Monica officials say Wednesday's curfew order will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 6 a.m. Thursday.
Torrance has set its curfew for 8 p.m. Wednesday through 5 a.m. Thursday.
West Hollywood's curfew now starts at 9 p.m. Wednesday and ends "at sunrise" Thursday. (The city initially announced a 6 p.m. curfew but later amended it.)
Upland will be under curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. every evening from Wednesday, June 3 through Monday, June 8.
And in other counties...
Anaheim has instituted a curfew from 9 p.m. tonight through 5:30 a.m. Thursday. Hundreds of people gathered for a peaceful demonstration outside Anaheim City Hall earlier Wednesday.
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY
Earlier this week, the city of San Bernardino, which is the county seat, declared a local state of emergency and ordered a curfew from 6 p.m. to sunrise, which "will continue nightly throughout the duration of the State of Emergency," according to the city's website.
In Highland, officials on June 1 declared a state of local emergency and implemented a citywide curfew from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. The curfew expires in seven days unless it's terminated earlier.
