The Santa Monica shutdown will begin several hours later than the past couple of days — at 6 p.m., compared with 2 p.m. Tuesday and 1 p.m. Monday. Today’s Beverly Hills curfew will be in two stages: The business district, which include Rodeo Drive, will close at 1 p.m., and the rest of the city locks down at 4 p.m.
Both Westside cities were hit with protests and looting over the weekend and marchers took to the streets to express outrage over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police — and agitators vandalized and ripped off stores.
We are awaiting word on new curfew orders for the L.A. city and county, but Santa Monica’s tweet says its order “aligns with” Los Angeles County:
No word yet on curfew orders for other cities in Los Angeles County including Culver City, Burbank and Glendale.
