SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Mayor London Breed and SF Public Health Director Dr. Grant Colfax provided an update on the city’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The update came as California’s stay-at-home order was lifted. This means counties are reverting back to the original color-coded tier system.
“Today is a day of celebration, but it’s also a reminder of how much work we have to do to get to a better place,” said SF Mayor London Breed.
San Francisco is moving forward with some limited re-openings now that the statewide Stay at Home Order has been lifted.

“This is not an open door to let us let our hair down and do what we want to do. Let’s do what we are doing, let’s wear our masks and limit the number of people we interact with so we don’t see another surge. And see this virus get out of control,” Breed said.
