In light of recent looting and vandalism in neighboring cities, there's plenty of online speculation and rumors about rioting events coming to Yucaipa.
Yucaipa Police Department officials told the News Mirror on June 1, at 2 p.m., that while they believe the threats to be rumors, "they are preparing for it."
There are no credible threats at this time.
Although there is not a countywide curfew, several cities in the county have enacted their own curfew and residents are urged to check with their own cities to determine if there are curfews.
The curfew is in response to several areas of rioting and looting in Southern California over the weekend, as well as planned protests set to occur today in Riverside County.
The curfew will expire Tuesday morning at 6 a.m. and will not apply to residents who must leave their homes to attend essential work or business after 6 p.m. The curfew is intended to prevent any potential acts of destruction and violence at protest sites. Law enforcement will continue to serve the community by conducting patrols and responding to calls for service.
Public health officials also remind the community that while gathering for peaceful protests, community members should wear a face covering and maintain six feet between others to thwart the spread of coronavirus.Members of the public can call 2-1-1 for more information.
