The Civil Emergency Order will allow additional resources to be called to Manhattan Beach to address civil unrest, if necessary.

The Civil Emergency Order is consistent with the County of Los Angeles’s countywide curfew from 6 PM to 6 AM. The curfew will remain in effect until it is terminated by the City Manager acting as the City’s Director of Emergency Services or the Manhattan Beach City Council. 

The City’s curfew Order prohibits people from being on the public streets, avenues, boulevards, places, walkways, alleys, parks, unimproved private realty, and all public areas in the City including the Beach and Strand. The curfew does not apply to peace officers, firefighters, National Guard or other military personnel, individuals traveling to and from work, people experiencing homelessness and without access to viable shelter, and individuals seeking medical treatment.
