San Francisco is going back into lockdown mode. One day after Governor Gavin Newsom issued a stay-at-home order for California’s hardest-hit areas, health officials announced they are speeding up the state’s timeline on restrictions and closing outdoor dining - and limiting other non-essential businesses. San Francisco joins several other Bay Area counties - Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Marin - and the City of Berkeley in implementing the new regional stay-at-home order.
The restrictions will take effect on Dec. 6th at 10pm (and last through Jan 4th, 2021). When that time comes, restaurants can offer takeout and delivery only. So, say so long to all those parklets, heat lamps, and fire pits, at least for now.
