Los Angeles County officials announced a curfew is in effect again tonight from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The order does not apply to those traveling to and from work, people in a medical emergency or police and fire fighters. Credentialed media, people working on a public improvement construction project and the homeless are also exempt.
Violation of the order is a misdemeanor, the county said, punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or by imprisonment not to exceed six months. If a city curfew has been set with a later start time, the county’s order applies within that city.
The county may renew or extend the order if public safety is at risk.
