Edit: Originally I had written that San Francisco would be locked down. I was wrong. We are to shelter in place. This means that places that provide basic needs will still be open.

The San Francisco Examiner just reported that, starting tonight (Tuesday 3/16) at midnight, San Franciscans will be expected to shelter-in-place.. Joshua Sabatini and Michael Barba write that “The City will prohibit residents from leaving their homes except to meet basic needs including visiting the doctor, or buying groceries or medicine, until at least April 7, Mayor London Breed is expected to announce Monday.”

Shit just got real people!

The Examiner continues:

In a statement, Breed urged the public to remain calm and emphasized “that all essential needs will continue to be met.”

“This is going to be a defining moment for our city,” Breed said. “We all have a responsibility to do our part to protect our neighbors and slow the spread of this virus by staying at home unless it is absolutely essential to go outside.”

You can follow the story as it updates right here.
