SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Beginning at 10 p.m. San Francisco, Contra Costa, and Santa Clara counties will have to go back into a similar lockdown that we saw back in March amid a coronavirus surge.

Hair salons, barbershops, and outdoor dining have to suspend services.

Under the order, all operations in the following sectors must be CLOSED:

  • Indoor and Outdoor Playgrounds 
  • Indoor Recreational Facilities 
  • Hair Salons and Barbershops 
  • Personal Care Services 
  • Museums, Zoos, and Aquariums

  •  Casinos 
  • Limited Services 
  •  Live Audience Sports

County health officials  say they hope this move will help save lives.

The following sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible with appropriate measures in place, like 100% masking and physical distancing:

  • Schools that are already open for in-person learning
  • Non-urgent medical and dental care
  • Child care and pre-K

Local health officials said there are currently more than 1,000 COVID hospitalizations in the Bay Area right now.

This move is to keep that number from increasing.
