Los Angeles County has established a countywide curfew that will last from Sunday, May 31 at 6:00 p.m. to Monday, June 1 at 6:00 a.m. The South Pasadena Police Department will take part in enforcing the curfew, and residents are to remain in their houses for its entire duration.
The L.A. County Board of Supervisors, at the direction of Sheriff Alex Villanueva, declared a state of emergency due to civil unrest from the many protests against police brutality taking place throughout the county. All businesses must close, although traveling to and from work, providing or seeking emergency care, credentialed media, or homeless people sheltering in place are exempt from the curfew.
The curfew will end on Monday at 6:00 a.m., although the County may choose to extend it.
