San Francisco 10pm Curfew Announced
This should not come as a big surprise to anyone, but San Francisco now joins most of the rest of California in the curfew club. Starting on Monday, November 30th, San Franciscans who aren’t providing an essential service will have to stay in their homes from 10pm to 5am.
This is because San Francisco has now landed in the “purple” tier of California’s county risk level chart. The purple tier is the worst tier on the scale.
According to Mayor London Breed’s tweets on Saturday afternoon, “This is the most aggressive surge SF has seen to date. We’re currently averaging 118 new cases per day compared to 73 per day in the first week of November. For the week of November 16th, we had 768 diagnosed cases compared to 217 diagnosed cases the week of October 12th.”
Starting on Sunday, November 29th, the city will roll back or reduce capacity of many activities that we’ve been lucky enough to have since the first shelter-in-place ended. This includes indoor gyms, indoor movie theaters, indoor museums and indoor houses of worship.
Not everything is terrible though. The Mayor also says, “Outdoor dining, indoor retail, indoor personal services, outdoor fitness & limited indoor 1-on-1 personal training at gyms or fitness centers may continue. Outdoor playgrounds, skate parks w/ limited capacity, batting cages, mini golf, outdoor zoos, & museums may remain open.”

Unfortunately as we expected, San Francisco has been placed on the State's most restrictive "purple" tier due the surge in COVID-19 cases.
Here's what this means for us and what we all need to do to reduce this alarming trend:
