Demonstrators in Westlake Village Monday night protest George Floyd death

The protests over the killing of George Floyd which have been occurring around the country are continuing on the Central and South Coasts Monday, but they remained peaceful in the region.

No major issues have been reported locally. 

Ventura and Santa Barbara County officials say at this point, there are no plans for curfews.

But there is one in place for the City of Santa Maria. City officials say as a precaution they will have a local emergency curfew in effect this week from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. People can go to work, or get emergency medical care, but must otherwise stay home during the curfew hours.

Santa Barbara County officials commended protesters for speaking out peacefully, and also to hold events with coronavirus safety in mind.

Law enforcement agencies in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties have been sending officers to help with disturbances in Southern California, and in the Bay Area.
