LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Los Angeles County once again extended a curfew for Tuesday as the region continues to see protests, and in some cases, looting.

The countywide curfew will go into effect starting at 6 p.m. through 6 a.m. Wednesday morning. Under the curfew, people are prohibited from being on streets, sidewalks, parks and any other public space.

Several other municipalities have enacted their own curfews. The following are details issued by each city.

Anaheim

The city will again be under curfew Tuesday evening, this time beginning at 9 p.m. and ending at 5:30 a.m. Travel for work, emergencies, credentialed media and the homeless are exempt from the order.

“We are unaware of any planned protests in our city on Tuesday,” officials said.

Beverly Hills

Starting at 1 p.m. Tuesday, all of Beverly Hills will be under a curfew through 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. City police will be “actively patrolling” the city, officials say.

Under the curfew, people are prohibited from being on streets, sidewalks, parks and any other public space.

Burbank

A curfew will again go into effect in Burbank at 5 p.m. Tuesday and will remain in place for 13 hours. As a result, the June 2 City Council meeting has been postponed until June 9, according to a statement on the city’s official website.

“The City of Burbank Police and Fire Departments are fully mobilized and are prepared for any emergencies or vandalism that may occur,” the statement said, adding that anyone experiencing an emergency should call 911.

Culver City

Residents of Cuvler City are advised to remain in their homes during the city’s curfew from 4 p.m. Tuesday to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The city manager ordered the curfew “due to the threat to public health and safety in Culver City due to widespread violence,” according to a statement. “We continue to support the peaceful protest of the tragic death of George Floyd.”

The homeless are exempt from the curfew, which prompted the cancellation of the city’s Farmers Market on Tuesday. Culver CityBus service will be discontinued at 8 p.m. and will resume when the curfew ends.

Garden Grove

Officials in Garden Grove declared a citywide curfew for the next few days as the region tries to gain control of and discourage looting. Curfew will take effect at 6 p.m. Tuesday, lasting through 5 a.m. Wednesday, and will remain in place Wednesday evening going into Thursday, June 4, for the same hours.

City of Los Angeles

A citywide curfew is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday and remain in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Unless specifically exempted, no one will be allowed on any public street, place, walkway, alley or park during the 12 hours. The order does not apply to emergency responders, public works crews, working news media personnel, people seeking medical treatment and those traveling to and from work.

Long Beach

The city’s 6 p.m. Tuesday curfew is set to expire at 6 a.m. Wednesday, and was imposed “to ensure the safety of our residents, businesses and emergency responders,” according to a statement.

Pasadena

“It is okay to walk in your neighborhood, but please avoid business areas after curfew,” which will last from 6 p.m. Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday, the city said in a statement. “Any person found outside after the curfew is subject to citation or arrest.”

Santa Monica

Residents of Santa Monica will be subject to yet another emergency curfew starting Tuesday at 2 p.m. through 5:30 a.m. Wednesday.

As one of the hardest hit areas during weekend protests and widespread looting, the Santa Monica community has been working to restore city businesses and public spaces that were badly damaged. City officials say they have taken nearly 300 reports of damage to retail businesses, 155 of which indicated “significant damage.”

Torrance

Meanwhile, officials in Torrance enacted a curfew that will remain in effect everyday for as long as L.A. County is under a state of emergency. The daily curfew will take effect at 6 p.m. every day through 6 a.m. the next morning.

West Hollywood

“Please stay indoors and be safer at home,” the city said in a statement, adding that it “joins protesters and other in outrage regarding the murder of George Floyd by police officers.” Tuesday’s 4 p.m. curfew ends Wednesday at sunrise.
