SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — San Francisco police arrived to Dolores Park Sunday afternoon to enforce social distancing orders.
Officers first used their loudspeakers to communicate with park visitors. They said they were reminding visitors to distance themselves from others.
A photo captured officers out of their car near a group of visitors. You can also see other people in the distance sitting down on the grass.
Statewide stay at home orders went into effect on March 19 to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Local agencies are enforcing orders in their own way.
Last week, seven Fremont residents were fined $1,000 in Santa Cruz for violating shelter in place orders.
