Wuhan coronavirus: S.F. Bay Area in quarantine until April 7

Residents of San Francisco Bay Area counties are ordered to “shelter in place” for some three weeks in an extraordinary attempt to slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

To date, the Bay Area has 273 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 4 deaths.

Nick Garber reports for Patch that beginning at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, March 17) and lasting for three weeks until at least April 7, residents of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties in the S.F. Bay Area are ordered to “shelter in place”.

The “shelter in place” order is likely the strictest measure taken anywhere in the U.S. against COVID-19:

  1. Residents are asked to stay home except for essential activities like seeking health care, shopping for food or other supplies.
  2. Outdoor activities like jogging and walking are allowed, but residents have to maintain a social distance of six feet, officials said.
  3. Businesses may remain open if they fall under a list of “essential businesses”— otherwise, they are asked to “cease all activities beyond minimum basic operations.” Many businesses would be shuttered, only allowing grocery stores, police and fire departments, pharmacies and some other businesses to stay open, San Francisco Mayor London Breed said in an announcement.
  4. Public transit will remain open, officials said.
  5. Homeless people are not subject to the order but the state is encouraging them to seek shelter.

My question:

How will they enforce this order? With martial law?

Another local news report says The “shelter in place” will be enforced by local police. But police departments are already over-stressed and under-staffed, so how will they have the manpower to enforce this mass quarantine?

I think people will follow these rules voluntarily. Not sure about the homeless. Advise people to prepare for more than a month and be kind and helpful to elder or disabled and neighbors in need. Praying for God to quickly change this virus course to non deadly and more mild. Praying for all fellowship members and supporters as well. Praying we learn God’s will and message here fast.

If homeless people are not subject to the order, then I call BS. Why does a certain class remain free from following such mandates? Especially one that has the least access to hygiene products?

All of CA is shutting down. LAUSD and all So CA colleges and Universities went to virtual classrooms last week. My Inland Empire school is closed for the next 3 weeks. Last night my husband walked the dog and dropped off a bag of dollar store “whirly-gig” toys for our neighbors’ kids, to entertain them over the next 3 weeks indoors. In a sign of thanks and friendship, they ran after him and gave him a pkg of 8 rolls of toilet paper. BCV (bef.CoronaVirus) this would have been a strange exchange, but today it seems like warm well-wishes exchanged… Read more »

Sometimes crises bring out the best in people! God bless everyone who is being kind during this mess. 🙂

I don’t think they have the resources to force quarantines….yet. People are being freaked out by the media for some reason, perhaps they are doing a “trial run” for something even more insidious.
They’ve already shut down Panera and other bagel places, though there is a restaurant still open, I’m wondering how these poor businesses and employees are going to function with no fund$ at all, I”m guessing the taxpayer will be on the hook later on for compensating them for being closed due to ‘state orders’.
I think this is being blown way out of proportion.

Totally agree that This is a test. Maybe to see how easy it is to control people. So far…very easy. I live in the SF Bay Area. The church I attend was forced to start a sign up system, no more than 35 people could come to each service. I’m guessing they’ll order us to close altogether in the next week. When the government starts to control the churches, it’s all bad.

Discrimination. That’s how they will enforce it. Now they have an excuse to stop any person they want. If you are on the street you run the risk of getting stopped. Anything goes after they stop you. The whole covid-19 is being exploited. Nobody should accept these conditions. Next, there will be an excuse to take guns. As far as I am concerned they have stepped across the line too far. People need to quit giving up control of their lives. It’s far past time to take the war to them. Ask yourselves why are homeless people not subject to… Read more »

I’m with you 100%. Personally, the minute they try to restrict my travel and movement, we’re gonna have a problem. Why? Number 1, because you’re violating my Constitutional rights. No local or state level politician has the right to blanketly override the Constitution. The President? Maybe, which brings me to… Number 2. Do any of you know anyone who has died of CV? Didn’t think so. It’s a fake pandemic. Yes, it’s a concern for the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions whose immune systems are already compromised by the effects of the drugs they take. But that’s it. Period.… Read more »

LOL! And true, too. It’s Scientism, the new worldly “religion”, or as Dr. Robert S. Meldelsohn called it, the religion of modern medicine.

” How will they enforce this order? With martial law?”

Yes, Governor Nuisance has mentioned that he would declare martial law “if he needs to”. Whatever that means.

I live in the bay area and everyone is pretty much staying in but you can move around if you have to. My husband has gone to the store for various things- food, medications, and dirt for planing his garden. The look like they did in the 1960’s here which is really nice.
