The U.S. city of San Francisco announced a curfew and other restrictions starting this Monday due to an upsurge in coronavirus cases.
Unnecessary businesses will be locked and gatherings were forbidden starting from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next day, a measure that will remain in effect until December 21, Mayor London Breed announced Saturday.
“Don’t travel and don’t gather.”
Also, some businesses whose activity takes place in the closed areas are forced to decrease the number of consumers or maybe close from this Sunday afternoon, affirmed the mayor.
Los Angeles took a series of initiatives until December 20, after closing on Wednesday all the bars and restaurants. Most public and private assemblies are banned for 21 days. These measures do not apply to religious services and demonstrations.
The curfew that California inflicted the previous week did not concern San Fransisco, but not anymore.
The United States has 13 million cases of Covid-19, with nearly 265,000 deaths, the highest death toll in the world.
