Los Angeles County officials enacted a curfew in LA County, following multiple days of protests against police brutality.

Protests across LA County started Friday after the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody.

The curfew originally lasted from 6 p.m. on Sunday to 6 a.m. on Monday. 

Kathryn Barger, the chair of the LA County Board of Supervisors, said she enacted the curfew to preserve public order and safety in an executive order. 

The curfew order does not apply to credentialed media, people experiencing homelessness, individuals seeking medical care, people traveling for business purposes and law enforcement, including the National Guard and military personnel.

Those who violate the curfew will receive a misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine up to $1,000, and up to six months in jail.

Barger also announced a local emergency because of the protests. This is the second local emergency this year, after LA County officials declared a local emergency March in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a curfew in the city of Los Angeles from 8 p.m. on Sunday to 5:30 a.m. on Monday.

The Los Angeles County curfew supersedes Garcetti’s curfew and all other local curfews in the County of Los Angeles that are less stringent than the county’s.

Los Angeles County reinstated the curfew Monday from 6 p.m. through 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The County further extended the curfew Tuesday morning from 6 p.m. on Tuesday through 6 a.m. on Wednesday.

Los Angeles County extended the curfew for the fourth day, from 9 p.m. on Wednesday to 5 a.m. on Thursday.

Citywide curfews in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills were announced Monday morning.

The curfew in both Beverly Hills and Santa Monica began June 1 starting at 1 p.m. in business districts, and at 4 p.m. for the rest of the city.

The Beverly Hills curfew extended through 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday. However, LA County’s curfew supersedes local curfews that are less stringent.

Beverly Hills has reinstated its curfew from 1 p.m. on Tuesday to 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Santa Monica will also reinstate its curfew from 2 p.m. on Tuesday to 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The curfew excludes emergency medical responders, people traveling between work, credentialed media, people voting, individuals experiencing homelessness, people seeking medical care, people working on a government construction project, and law enforcement, including the military and National Guard.
