Lake County curfew in effect until further notice

RELEASE DATE: May 31, 2020

Tavares – A curfew will be in effect from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. starting this evening until lifted. The curfew applies to all unincorporated and incorporated areas of Lake County except where a municipal curfew, which is more strict, has been placed in effect by a municipality.

“We stand with those peacefully protesting the tragic death of George Floyd and we fully support the rights of our citizens to express their outrage over this situation,” said Lake County Commission Chairman Leslie Campione. “But we condemn vandalism, violence and lawlessness that is causing great harm to communities across our country. To protect our citizens, businesses and first responders, we are imposing a curfew throughout Lake County which starts tonight at 10 p.m. and ends at 5 a.m. until such time as the curfew is lifted.”
