SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU)
- In an unprecedented move to slow the spread of an illness killing people throughout the world, six Bay Area counties on Monday issued a legal order directing their residents to stay at home for three weeks starting Tuesday.
The order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs. The counties that issued the order are: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties announced, and the City of Berkeley which has its own public health division. Santa Cruz County also issued a similar mandate asking residents to shelter in place.
