Many San Francisco residents have been ignoring the social distancing and shelter-in-place measures that have been in effect since late February, and SF Supervisor Aaron Peskin has had enough.
According to the S.F.P.D. two people have been fined for shelter-in-place violations.
Supervisor Peskin promises more citations will be issued, and fines will increase. He pleaded for people to keep their distances, especially at farmer’s markets.
Violating the health and safety code is a misdemeanor, and can bring fines of between $50 and $1,000, and a possible jail sentence of 90 days.
Last Saturday, police in Santa Cruz issued seven citations for shelter-in-place violations at $1,000 each.
