City Hall is planning to impose curfews on four migrant respite centers starting Tuesday.

Officials said that roughly 1,900 adult asylum-seekers staying at the centers, including one in Brooklyn, one in Manhattan and two in Queens, will need to be checked in nightly between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Exceptions will be made, officials said, for these who acquire passes for work, travel to school, legal appointment or medical needs and emergencies. Those who violate the curfew without being issued an exemption pass three times in a 30-day period may be removed from the center.

The city will begin notifying residents of the new rules Monday before they’re implemented Tuesday evening.
