For a city that's done so well overall keeping its residents safe from #Covid_19 , the inability to protect people in the Tenderloin is a huge disgrace. I have two new episodes of the @sfchronicle 's Fifth and Mission podcast out now to help inform this important conversation. 1/3

The president of San Francisco’s small business commission. Love this city. 🎸🎸🎸

“Grandchildren and grandparents and best friends and siblings spending time together is incredibly meaningful. It’s not just important because it’s fun. It’s important for mental and physical well-being.” — Dr. Mark Shapiro of @ETSshow  with tips for how to do that safely.

First up, listen to @Iamsamdennison  of @FaithfulFools  , an anti-poverty nonprofit on Hyde Street, describe what it's like to live and work in the neighborhood during the pandemic. Health outcomes (even unrelated to the virus) are getting worse.

BREAKING: San Francisco is mandating face masks as of midnight tonight. This applies to people running errands and riding transit, but not for exercise or driving your car. It does not apply to children 12 and younger.

Wow. The is calling the race to recall Brock Turner sentencing Judge Aaron Persky. He is the first California judge to be recalled since 1932.

BREAKING: Some restrictions on the Bay Area's shelter-in-place rules will be lifted on Monday. Approved activities include all construction, plant nurseries, flea markets, car washes, sunbathing in parks, fishing, skateboard parks and golf.

Good news! Just confirmed with the mayor's office it is OK under the shut down order to drive to hiking trails, beaches, etc., to walk and get fresh air. You don't have to just walk around your neighborhood. Also, bicycling for exercise is fine under the order. #coronavirus 

My column on winning the election for mayor. She #SanFranciscobecomes  the city's first woman of color to win the seat and just its second woman mayor ever. Of the country's 15 biggest cities, all have male mayors -- until now.

A 15-year-old black boy is shot and killed in the Mission and people complain about a headline calling him a child. Not about, you know, a 15-year-old being shot and killed in the Mission. Great, thought-provoking read from the talented @EskSF .

My latest: Taking a sledgehammer to a journalist’s door and handcuffing him to root out his source is a huge violation of freedom of the press. That’s why it’s disturbing the police chief, mayor & judges see nothing wrong with it, especially in liberal SF.
