San Francisco, San Mateo counties move to purple tier

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – San Francisco and San Mateo counties have joined the other counties in the most restrictive purple tier.

Gyms , churches and movie theaters have to now be outdoors.

Retail stores must limit capacity to 25%. 

Restaurants may continue to operate outdoors. 

The state is saying it’s necessary based on the data that is coming in amid the coronavirus pandemic.

San Francisco entered the purple tier Sunday at noon, according to Mayor London Breed on Twitter.

San Francisco and San Mateo counties will also be under the state’s overnight curfew starting Monday, Nov. 30th from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Dec. 21.

London Breed said that “This is the most aggressive surge SF has seen to date.”

Many California counties rolled back into more restrictive tiers last Monday.

Marin County is the last Bay Area county in the red tier.
