SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The San Francisco Bay Area's shelter-in-place order will be extended through at least May 1 as a surge in coronavirus cases is anticipated in the coming weeks.

According to a press release, more details will be provided once the extension is finalized in the next day or two.

San Francisco was the first to extend the shelter-in-place order, Mayor London Breed confirmed Monday.

The counties who signed the joint order include Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Mateo and the city of Berkeley, which operates its own public health department.
