Mayor Garcetti reissues citywide curfew for Tuesday evening to protect safety for demonstrators, residents, businesses

Updated order requires people in the City of Los Angeles to remain indoors starting Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m. until Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m.

LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti announced today that a citywide curfew would go into effect on Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m. 

The curfew requires people within the City of Los Angeles to stay indoors tonight, starting at 6:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning. 

There will be an identical curfew in effect across Los Angeles County. There are exceptions in place for emergency responders, people going to and from work, and anyone traveling to and from participating in voting.

“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 destroying property and looting,” said Mayor Garcetti. “We are keeping the curfew in place tonight to protect everyone’s safety and help our first responders keep the peace.”
