San Francisco’s Bay Area on Friday implemented California’s new stay-at-home orders ahead of schedule, reports Axios.

The directive says playgrounds, indoor recreational facilities, family entertainment centers, hair salons, bars, brewers and distilleries, among others, must close temporarily starting Monday for Alameda, Tuesday for Marin and Sunday for all other counties.

Outdoor dining will also be restricted, though take-out, pick-up and delivery are still permitted.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced the state’s strictest new COVID-19 measures aimed at keeping hospitals from becoming overwhelmed, including sweeping stay-at-home orders set to take effect when the intensive care units in a region’s hospitals fill to more than 85% of capacity.  

''We are not islands, and acting together enables us to better more completely protect the public and everyone that we collectively serve,'' Santa Clara County Health Officer Sara Cody said in a press release Friday.

''It takes several weeks for new restrictions to slow rising hospitalizations and waiting until only 15 percent of a region’s ICU beds are available is just too late,'' San Francisco Health Officer Tomás Aragón added. ''Many heavily impacted parts of our region already have less than 15 percent of ICU beds available, and the time to act is now.''

Deputies in several California counties say they won’t enforce Newsom’s stay-at-home order at businesses.
