With state-imposed nighttime curfew to take effect in Los Angeles County on Saturday night, officials at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station say they plan to warn people they break the curfew if discovered after 10 p.m., but not post citations tonight.

The sheriff’s station shift commander said WEHOville MPs would give people the benefit of the doubt and issue verbal warnings if they were on the streets and sidewalks after 10 p.m., at least on that first night. of curfew.

Sheriff officials are not aware of any mass gatherings planned in West Hollywood to willfully violate the curfew in protest. However, it appears that such a protest rally is scheduled in Beverly Hills tonight.

On Thursday, the state ordered all counties on the purple level, the most restrictive level in the states coronavirus surveillance system, to submit to a month-long nighttime curfew. Some 41 of the 58 state counties are covered by this curfew, including all of southern California.

Curfew hours are 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., but essential workers are exempt. The curfew is currently scheduled to last until December 21, but could be extended beyond.

The curfew is the latest attempt to control the coronavirus pandemic. The number of new cases of COVID-19 has skyrocketed in recent weeks.

Los Angeles County recorded 4,522 new cases and 34 deaths on Saturday. In the past four days, the county has registered 17,769 new cases.

There are 1,391 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 26% of those people are in intensive care. This is almost double the daily number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 since the beginning of October when the daily number of hospitalized patients was less than 700.

State and county officials fear this huge increase in the number of cases will overwhelm hospitals as people fall ill. The state-imposed curfew is an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

Officials say many of the newly infected have been infected during social gatherings in private homes. People tend to let their guard down, ignore social distancing, and remove their masks at these private gatherings. The curfew is an attempt to reduce the number of private gatherings.

In West Hollywood, the city has recorded 21 new cases for a cumulative total of 868 cases since the start of the pandemic. The city saw 98 new cases registered last week.
