Uber-Progressive, Mask Loving San Francisco To Require 10 Day Quarantine For Visitors

I’m assuming these are visitors who are coming to walk on the poop, urine, and used drug needles all over the city? Or, are looking to get their car stolen? One has to wonder why this super Progressive city is having such a big problem with COVID, and, it looks like they are trying to blame visitors

San Francisco imposes mandatory COVID quarantine for travelers outside Bay Area

The city of San Francisco is requiring any incoming travelers to quarantine for 10 days starting Friday.

I’m guessing that means no one will bother visiting San Fran, eh?

The mayor and director of health said it applies to anyone traveling, moving, or returning to San Francisco from anywhere outside the Bay Area, exempting some people who are traveling for “certain critical activities.”

According to the health order, it also strongly discourages non-essential travel between the Bay Area counties: San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, Marin and Santa Cruz.

Exemptions:

  • Medical professionals, first responders, official government business, essential infrastructure work
  • Travel to receive medical care or travel required by a court order, like transferring custody of a child
  • People transiting through San Francisco International Airport on connecting flights and not staying overnight in San Francisco

Nice how government officials have exempted themselves and government employees from the quarantine requirement, eh?

(NBC Bay Area) The travel quarantine order, which started at 12:01 a.m. Friday, remains in effect until at least 12:01 a.m. Jan. 4. It applies to returning residents and those moving to the city who spent any time outside the following nearby counties: San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, Marin and Santa Cruz.

“COVID-19 cases are surging in San Francisco and across the country,” Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “Hospitals in the Bay Area are close to being overwhelmed. We must do whatever we can to contain the virus and stop its circulation in our community. Now is not the time to travel and risk being exposed or exposing others. We need to do the right thing to protect ourselves, our neighbors and our loved ones and make sure that we can celebrate together when this is over.”

It’s great how Mayor Breed yammers about doing the right thing when she’s exempted, eh? Why is COVID surging, and surging heavily, in San Fran, when they have all these restrictions and everyone wears a mask? It’s a Progressive utopia, isn’t everyone following the rules?

    Who are they kidding? Hospitals have been overwhelmed in California for decades. It is caused by uninsured immigrants showing up at emergency rooms for exorbitant amounts of free care. The only exceptions are the private hospitals who long ago removed their emergency rooms so they wouldn’t have to take everyone who showed up on their doorsteps. The only thing new is the ability to demand higher payments from the Federal government through the CARES act if the patient is “COVID related”. So now, everyone IS COVID related.

      Further, the fact that they permit any exemptions at all is proof that they aren’t really trying to stop the spread of disease. Diseases spread by exceptions just as well as through non-exceptions.

    How, I have to ask, will the City by the Bay enforce these rules? The article didn’t tell us. What is the penalty for breaking these rules? The article didn’t tell us that, either.

    Well, I went to the city government website, and found this:

    This is a legally enforceable order issued under California law. It is a crime to violate this order. You may be punished by a fine or imprisonment if you do.

    If there are other guidelines that do not agree with SF’s order, follow the stricter rule.

    If you see businesses or others not complying with the Stay Home order, you can report a violation.

    Other than the snitch site, no indication is given as to how the regulation will be enforced. The city says it’s a “crime to violate this order,” but doesn’t specify what that crime is, or what the fines or imprisonment would be.

    The old Soviet Union had an internal passport system, to keep people from going where the Communists didn’t think they should be. How will San Francisco keep track of people and know when someone has, horrors! come in from outside the Bay Area?
