|Six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area — San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Marin, Contra Costa and Alameda — will be placed under a shelter-in-place directive today by public health officials in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, San Mateo Mayor Joe Goethals said.
Earlier the mayor had said nine counties would be affected, but then he corrected that number.
