Covid Shutdowns in Bay Area: Map

Map below shows which counties can, and can’t reopen under new 4-tier system.

The curfew will start Saturday night at 10 p.m. and last until 5 a.m. on Dec. 21st.

Governor Gavin Newsom announced a nightly curfew order for counties in the purple tier of California’s reopening plan. Those counties — which currently include every Bay Area county except San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin — will have a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew every day for a month.

The vast majority of Californians — 94 percent — live in counties in the purple tier, where coronavirus transmission is considered “widespread.”

The exemptions? Getting food, accessing medical care, or travelling to essential work. Non-essential businesses will not be permitted to remain open during the curfew hours.

Why a night curfew?

To explain the curfew, Newsom’s statement essentially said higher spread occurs during activities fueled by inebriation and late-night antics, warning of “social activities and gatherings that have a higher likelihood of leading to reduced inhibition.”

California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly explained that Californians engaged in late-night activities, risk spreading the virus to people with health risks.
