Wanting to go out? You're going to have to wait a while. San Francisco's stay at home order was just extended through the end of May. This also includes 6 other Bay area counties.
The initial order was set to expire on May 3; now it will last through May 31.
San Francisco's Mayor London Breed said that the city was seeing a spike of COVID-19 cases and "we are not out of the woods yet."
Six Bay counties joined together to release an official statement from health officials.
According to ABC7 News, the stay at home extension affects Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties. It also includes the city of Berkeley, which has its own public health department.
This affects over 7 million local residents within these areas.
Health officials said that more details on the shelter in place order would be released later this week.
But for now, that means locals can only go out for essential activities and the six feet apart social distancing order is still in place.
Going out for essential shopping such as groceries, prescriptions, and physical exercise is still allowed. San Francisco residents are required to wear a face mask or face $1,000 fines and jail time.
Breed said choosing to extend the order was one of the most difficult things she has had to do as a mayor.
She compared COVID-19 to the Spanish 1918 flu when people took off their masks and decided to go back outside too early. This resulted in a prolonged pandemic and even more casualties, she said.
When describing her decision, Breed said, "we want to be very careful that we don't take steps out of frustration ... we don't move too quickly and repeat mistakes that have been made in our past history."

A Toronto bar is asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide Street East, launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on," it added.
Driscoll's version, which is hilariously titled "Ontario, Let Me Go (Play Golf)," has already racked up over 136,000 views on YouTube.
"Not being able to golf, and just the frustration over the lockdowns and COVID this past year, I thought it might cheer myself and others up to have a funny song about letting us golf," he told Narcity when asked about the inspiration behind the cover.
"I just thought it would bounce around between friends and family. I had no idea it would blow up like this...must be a lot of golfers in Ontario," he added.
Referencing Joey's character having changed his lifestyle following a pay raise, Victoria warns that "lifestyle creep can ruin you" and that "the reality is, if you don't know what to do with it, your money can go as fast as it came."
When discussing the character Ross comically bringing a couch upstairs without the aid of professional movers, Victoria points out that "getting help from the right professionals is not an expense, it's an investment."
