Day 8: San Francisco's Coronavirus Shutdown In Pictures

Mar 24, 2020

The Bay Area's shelter-in-place ordinance reached its second week, and residents seem to be getting used to a new rhythm. It's largely slower, with very little street traffic, empty buses and trains, and take-out businesses struggling to draw customers.

This collection of photos shows a variety of perspectives. In the Outer Noriega shopping district, Devil's Teeth Bakery had its full menu in place, though its popular parklet was closed. Electrical workers had to violate the six-foot social distancing recommendation in order to do their jobs. Garbage collectors had to deal with the discards of people staying at home. In downtown San Francisco, boutique retailers were boarded up. And somebody with chalk and a jump rope made a point on Bernal Hill.
