Contrary to reports on social media, the San Francisco Police Department has issued no citations to San Francisco residents for violating the health order to stay indoors. While the SFPD states they have the ability to write someone up for a misdemeanor, officers have instead relied on warnings to city residents.

Meanwhile, as the sheriff's office fears it’s only a matter of time before a deputy or a prisoner tests positive for COVID-19, 26 prisoners are being released over the next 60 days to reduce the number of people who may spread the coronavirus. 13 of the current inmates will be placed in supportive housing, while the rest will return to their homes.
