San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city is launching a “slow streets” programme to aid with social distancing during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

 

 

 

Initially, 12 city streets will be closed to through traffic. Local vehicle access will still be permitted. The idea is to make it easier for people to maintain social distancing by allowing them to get off narrow sidewalks and walk in their neighborhood streets without having cars speeding by.

 

 

Breed acknowledged Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf for leading the way. The city is calling this phase one, so we could see more closures ahead.
