Six Bay Area counties have announced a shelter-in-place order for all residents beginning at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow, March 17 and lasting until at least April 7. The counties are Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Marin County, San Mateo County, San Francisco County, and Santa Clara County.
The shelter-in-place order allows for people to leave their homes for necessary supplies, accessing health care, providing aid to family and friends who need assistance, for exercise with appropriate social distancing, and for returning to homes outside the Bay Area. For more information about the shelter-in-place order, please see this San Francisco Chronicle article.
Lab leadership and the Critical Incident Management Group (CIMG) are working to understand the implications for the Lab and developing guidance. Please watch your email; more information will be provided as soon as possible this afternoon.
