LANCASTER – The Antelope Valley and other parts of Los Angeles County that haven’t set their own earlier curfews will be under a curfew that runs from 9 p.m. tonight, June 3, through 5 a.m. Thursday, June 4.
This is the fourth night of a countywide curfew ordered to protect public safety.
“Tonight’s curfew will start later than the curfew in previous nights as the county assesses public safety needs on a daily basis. Residents, unless otherwise noted, are asked to stay in their home during the curfew,” according to a news release from Los Angeles County.
The countywide curfew does not apply to the following: peace officers; firefighters; 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; and individuals seeking medical treatment.
The county curfew applies to every municipality in Los Angeles County, but cities can implement stricter curfews based on their local needs.
