SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A shelter-in-place mandate is now in effect for nearly 7 million living in 6 Bay Area counties.
The measure was ordered Monday to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
The order went into effect at midnight and will last for the next three weeks.
It requires people living in San Francisco, Marin, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties to stay at home unless absolutely necessary.
This new health order only limits activity and travel.
Necessary government functions and essential stores will remain open.
City and county government services such as police, fire departments and hospitals will also be open.
Your trash will still be picked up.
Public transportation will still run, some with modified service.
Your mail will still be delivered.
Also, plumbers, electricians, hardware stores, and laundromats will still be available.
It’s also important to check on your elderly neighbors, friends and loved ones. Offer to pick up their prescriptions or groceries if you can.
Non-essential functions refer to places like bars, gyms, movie theaters, and dine-in restaurants.
This doesn’t mean restaurants will be closed at this time.
