Meet Up with Friends During Shelter in Place, San Francisco Mayor Releases New Guidelines

“Seeing friends can be important for your mental health.”

Mayor London Breed released guidelines for residents that want to meet up with others outside of their home. The new flexible stance on San Francisco’s stay at home order comes after thousands have gathered together outside to protest. Some of the new guidelines include:

  • Make a plan
  • Hang out with as few people as possible
  • Try to only spend time with the same people
  • Try not to share food, drinks, or utensils. Each person should have their own, if possible.
  • Avoid singing, chanting, or shouting
  • If you’re outside
    • Stay 6 feet apart
    • Wear face coverings
  • If you’re inside
    • Wear a face covering
    • Be in a room with good ventilation
    • Don’t touch surfaces
    • Wipe down surfaces often
    • Avoid using other people’s bathrooms, if possible
