Earlier this week, Governor Newsom announced that shelter in place orders would be less strict beginning May 8th. However, six Bay Area counties have decided to keep the orders in place.

Due to the fact that San Francisco has not flattened the curve, Mayor London Breed has announced that non-essential businesses will remain closed in San Francisco county. Non-essential businesses include: bookstores, florists, toy shops, and sporting good retailers. Five other counties-Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, and Santa Clara county all plan to remain closed as well.

These orders will remain through at least May 18th.

It appears as though Sonoma County does not feel ready to open retail either. However, Solano and Napa county plan to follow Newsom’s guidelines and will be allowing non-essential businesses to open for curbside pick up.
