In the San Francisco Bay Area, these counties are affected by shelter in place orders: San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Marin, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz and Alameda counties. These photos show some of what has been happening in street and grocery scenes. Sonoma County was added to this list today.

Residents are being ordered to stay home except for essential reasons. People can buy food, go to the doctor, buy medicine and and also leave for outdoor activities including walking, hiking or running and caring for a pet.

Local officials asked people people to go home with their families and to stay there until they are told otherwise. Panic buying is widespread despite assurances that there is plenty of food in the supply chain.
