  • The San Francisco Bay Area will be directed to “shelter in place” at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday until April 7 in an attempt to contain the coronavirus outbreak.
  • The order will require residents to remain indoors except for essential travel, like going to get groceries.
  • The shelter-in-place order is different from a full lockdown, which would prohibit people from leaving their homes without government permission.
