The curfew is intended to stop social gatherings and other behavior that officials say is contributing to California’s surge in cases. It requires all non-essential work, movement and gatherings to stop during the curfew period.

It will be in effect in all Bay Area counties except San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin. San Francisco warned on Friday Nov. 20 that it could be placed into the purple, high-risk tier as early as Sunday and be subject to the curfew rules.
