Sonoma County joined six others in the Bay Area in announcing stricter shelter-in-place guidelines. As of Tuesday, March 31 millions of residents in Sonoma, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Francisco Counties are now being ordered to shelter-in-place through May 3, 2020.
The order also places stricter guidelines on what residents are allowed to do while the order is in place. Dog parks, playgrounds, and all other recreational spaces will remain closed.
Businesses that are considered essential in these counties are now required to enforce social distancing in the workplace. They are also required to limit the number of employees who come into the office. All employees who are able to work from home must do so. Read the full order from Sonoma County HERE.
