I never thought I’d see this, so I had to get out and see it with my own eyes, and, I had to get some food.
Empty streets, 15 minutes before noon, on Tuesday March 17th, 2020, downtown San Francisco. This was the first full day of the shelter in place order, issued by San Francisco Mayor London Breed. The order will remain in effect until April 7th, 2020. However, just a few days later California Governor Newsom issued an Executive Order, calling on all Californians, all 4o million of us, to shelter in place until further notice.
The Governor is quoted as saying:
We have the capacity to meet this moment — but only if we change our behaviors. We don’t want to look back with regrets — not when the data points to where this could be headed. Let’s bend the curve TOGETHER.
