Who Is Exempt From the Curfews?

Most localities have curfew exemptions, such as:

  • Police officers, firefighters, emergency operation employees, or any other responding personnel deployed to the area
  • People who can “establish to the satisfaction of a peace officer” that they are outside for the sole purpose of traveling to a home or workplace or to seek medical assistance
  • Authorized journalists and employees of media organizations
  • People experiencing homelessness

Check your city or county’s website for more information on exemptions, which may expand beyond this list.

What Will Happen If I Break Curfew?

If you’re stopped by police and they determine you’re not exempt from the curfew, the officer could issue a citation or make a custodial arrest. According to SFPD, people may be booked rather than cited and released if the police determine there’s likelihood the offense or offenses will continue, or that “the safety of persons or property would be imminently endangered by the person arrested.”
