San Francisco’s shelter-in-place order is being extended through May 31, though new guidelines will include limiting easing of specific restrictions for a small number of lower-risk activities, according to a joint press release issued Monday by public health officials across the Bay Area.

San Francisco, which issued a stay-at-home order on March 16, has 1,424 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with 23 deaths.

The city’s first reported case came on March 5.

Mayor London Breed on Monday said there is much uncertainty around COVID-19 and that the city is “not out of the woods yet.”

"There's a lot of uncertainty because we see the numbers (of positive COVID-19 cases) go up every day in our city. We also see the number of hospitalizations and they also go up, and the good news we see they have not gone up like other places because you are all doing your part to comply, but the fact is they are still going up," Breed said.

"I know this is not easy and you may be feeling restless. I feel the same way. But what we don't want is to relax restrictions too early, see new cases spike, and have to revert to tougher restrictions again."
