The shelter-in-place order in San Francisco could be extended past its current April 7 deadline, city Mayor London Breed told Business Insider.




San Francisco and other area counties in the area imposed the order, which generally requires residents to stay at home unless they provide or are seeking essential goods and services, on Tuesday.




The duration of the order will depend in part on how well residents comply with it, Breed said.




Thus far, compliance has been somewhat spotty, but San Francisco officials are focusing on educating people about it rather than strict enforcement, she said.

San Francisco and other nearby counties may extend their shelter-in-place orders, put in place to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus, beyond their now scheduled end date of April 7, city Mayor London Breed told Business Insider.
San Francisco county health officials are studying data on the outbreak to determine how long to maintain the shelter-in-place order, which the region initiated Tuesday morning, Breed said in an interview Thursday. No decision has yet been made about whether to extend the duration of the order, Breed said, but she left open the possibility.
"This is an evolving situation. Things are changing constantly," she said. "And I think that as things change, we need to be prepared to make adjustments."
