With new COVID cases surging across the Bay Area, San Francisco and San Mateo counties were relegated Saturday from the Red Tier to the Purple Tier on the state’s COVID monitoring scale, triggering a new wave of restrictions on local businesses.

“A new stay-at-home order – prohibiting residents from leaving their homes to gather with other households from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. – also takes effect at 10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30.” Reported California Department of Public Health, Health and Human Services Agency’s press release.

The curfew comes after San Francisco entered the purple tier over the weekend. Mayor London Breed explained in addition to a curfew, “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.”

Residents are reminded, “We all need to do our part, now more than ever, to stop the spread of COVID-19. That means doubling down on the things we’ve all been doing: wearing a mask, keeping your distance from others, not gathering with people outside your household, and washing your hands frequently.
