San Francisco to impose curfew on Nov. 30

Saturday, 28. November 2020 23:55

San Francisco's Mayor London Breed announced on Saturday that the city's authorities would impose an overnight curfew from November 30 due to a high number of registered coronavirus cases.

The curfew will last from 10 pm to 5 am local time until December 21, when the situation will be reassessed. Next to that, all gyms, museums and movie theaters will suspend indoor activities, while retails will reduce their capacities by three quarters. However, schools will continue to work.

According to Breed, the city has registered 118 new positive cases per day on average so far. The decision comes expectedly, as California tightened restriction measures earlier in November. The federal state has seen almost 1.2 million cases and 19,106 coronavirus-related deaths since the start of the year, and stands for one of the hardest-hit places in the United States.
