San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced Monday that health officials are extending the city’s stay-at-home order through May. Breed instituted a shelter-in-place order for the city on March 16 prior to California Gov. Gavin Newsom instituting a statewide stay-at-home order.
“We do expect some lower-risk activities to be allowed to resume soon, but for the safety of you and those around you we must build on the progress we’ve made,” Breed said in a tweet.
She said that the city does not want to relax restrictions too early in case there’s a spike in cases.
