There will be a mass closure of Californian state buildings on Monday (local time) in response to the protests.
“After consultation with the California Highway Patrol and Office of Emergency Services, the decision was made this evening to advise all state departments with offices in downtown city areas to close tomorrow, and to notify staff of the decision,” said Amy Palmer, a spokeswoman for the Californian Government Operations Agency.
The Los Angeles Times reported that all 38 courthouses in the Los Angeles County would be closed “out of an abundance of caution”.
A Californian Department of Justice memo sent to workers said the attorney general’s offices in Sacramento, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego would also be closed.
“Staff assigned to these offices should not report to work for any reason,” the memo said.
Employees are being told to work from home instead.
