Storyline


The San Francisco Bay Area was one of the first regions in the U.S. to issue a "shelter in place" to encourage residents to stay home unless they are conducting essential business.

The city ordered nonessential businesses to send workers home, though some places like pharmacies, banks and grocery stores remain open.
"Now what really matters is what is going on in San Francisco, and in the Mission, and the Marina where people who are in their 20's and 30's are living. That's where the transmission is going to take place in," said George Rutherford, a professor of Epidemiology from the University of San Francisco.

San Francisco's Marina district's parks and outdoor gyms are still open to the public, and some residents thought that going outside to get a little exercise was all right as long as they kept their distance.

"Even the California governor though said, because I looked at what he said. And he said it was okay to walk outdoors. You know, just keep your distance because it's okay to go outside," a resident told China Global Television Network (CGTN) reporters.

With restaurants being closed in the area, a lot of employees are trying to fill their time with working out and staying healthy.

"I know people are worried about working out and there's people here. But it's like a tenth of what's in a grocery store probably, or even like a corner market. We're still all pretty spaced out. So, should be totally fine," a young restaurant employee said.

Some people also think that since they have been around certain people for months, then they won't be able to infect each other. Rutherford explained that through watching Wuhan, experts know that transmission can happen from people who don't show symptoms.

"No, it doesn't work that way. There's quite a bit we know from Wuhan that there's quite a bit of asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic transmission. I think you have to assume that people who are out walking about are potentially infectious," Rutherford said.

Some of the elderly are also determined to get their daily workouts regardless of the risks to themselves.

One elderly resident who was keeping to his workout regimen said he believes that he will be fine as long as he keeps a healthy distance from people and washes his hands after he gets home.

"As long as you are six feet away from other people. And this is sort of wide open and so I figure, you know I wash my hands, after I go back home. And I brought my own things. I'll wipe it down when I get home," he told reporters.

The San Francisco Bay area's shelter-in-place order will go until April 7, where the city will determine if it needs to be extended and whether the definition of what's an "essential activity" remains the same.
