SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Last week, the SF Department of Public Health modified its stay-at-home-order that started on December 6th.
The city announced you can now meet with 1 other person who doesn’t live with you.
Together, you can do the following:
- Take a walk
- Hang out at the park
- Play low-contact sports
You still have to wear a mask and socially distance.
San Francisco District 6 Supervisor Matt Haney tweeted, “This is a change.”
These changes were made with people’s mental health in mind.
“To balance the risk of negative impacts on mental health for those in complete isolation of others and the risk of transmission between two masked, distanced individuals who are outdoors,” the department said in a statement.
Haney tweeted that he’s glad the state
Earlier this month, five Bay Area counties went under the state’s stay-at-home order which requires an effort to curb an increase in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
