Tavares – Lake County’s current curfew in effect from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. will be lifted at 5 a.m. on Monday, June 8.
The curfew was put in place on May 31 in all unincorporated and incorporated areas of Lake County following credible threats of vandalism received by law enforcement.
The curfew does not apply to such activities as: the provision of fire, police, emergency and hospital services, medical patients, or emergency calls by physicians; persons traveling to or from work; or persons traveling to one’s place of business or property. Further, businesses are not required to change normal business hours, and may remain open after 10 p.m. The order can be accessed at https://bit.ly/3dLhD1r.
“The goal of the curfew order is to allow residents to engage in normal, lawful activities, and to facilitate peaceful demonstrations and expressions of opinion, while at the same time giving assurance to our residents that business districts and property will be safe during evening hours,” said Lake County Commission Chairman Leslie Campione.
