Local Emergency Declared and Curfew Enacted

The City of Fontana has declared a local emergency and enacted a curfew beginning at 10:00 p.m. today, Sunday, May 31, and ending at sunrise on Monday, June 1. The curfew will remain in place from 6:00 p.m. to sunrise until further notice.

The declaration and curfew are in response to civil unrest resulting from protests throughout the country this past weekend. The City of Fontana stands with our concerned community members and residents in their outrage regarding the death of George Floyd. We respect the public’s right to peacefully assemble and protest outside curfew hours.

“The City seeks to be an ally in the fight against racial injustice. It is our intent to impose a nighttime curfew so as to leave opportunities during the daytime for voices of the protestors to make themselves heard,” explains Mayor Acquanetta Warren.

During curfew hours, persons must remain in their place of residence unless seeking medical services, or travelling for work, religious meetings or child custody court orders. All law enforcement, fire, and medical personnel are exempt from the curfew.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay home and stay safe. The proclamation for the curfew is available at https://www.fontana.org/…/3…/Curfew-Proclamation-May-31-2020.
