By Sarah Jaffe December 2, 2018 5:30pmCalifornia’s curfew law requires that people not be outside unless they are home, in a designated area, and in reasonable safety.
But that’s not always the case.
In some cities, it also applies to schools.
As part of a broader crackdown on violence against children in the state, the Department of Public Health has instituted new guidelines for when and how the law can be enforced.
“The law applies to public places that are open to the general public, such as restaurants, shops, parks, beaches, and public transportation,” reads a statement from the Department.
However, that’s a very broad definition of “open to the public.”
So what does the law actually say?
In most instances, it doesn’t say how much people should be allowed to do outside the home, but rather that they must stay inside at all times.
But in some places, the state is cracking down on things like camping out and camping on sidewalks.
In other cities, the curfew law only applies to school zones, meaning people can only be outside when their children are in school zones.
Some cities, such.
New York, also allow people to be outside during a specific period of time after a school day ends, so that they can go outside with their children.
Other cities, like San Francisco, allow people who are at home to go outside in the school zone for an unlimited amount of time, but the law is strict.
