San Mateo County: outdoor recreation must be within 5 miles of home

The San Francisco Chronicle reports

San Mateo County restricts outdoor recreation to five miles within residents’ homes: The new shelter-in-place health order issued by San Mateo County mandates that outdoor recreation activity must take place within five miles of a person’s residence. Not all county orders were as explicit, but many parks and beaches across the region have closed parking lots to prevent vehicle access. San Francisco officials noted in an FAQ about the order that if people need to drive to go for a walk or run, they are going too far. “Our preference is that you really try to get your exercise closer to where you live if at all possible,” Mayor London Breed said on Wednesday during a town hall.
