Parking lots at Ocean Beach in San Francisco are closed Sunday following a large gathering there on Saturday, Mayor London Breed announced on her Facebook and Twitter accounts, expressing concern about the potential spread of Covid-19.

Breed wrote Sunday morning:

“Last night, over 1,000 people crowded on Ocean Beach to celebrate Burning Man. This was absolutely reckless and selfish. You are not celebrating. You are putting people’s lives at risk. You are putting our progress at risk. No one is immune from spreading the virus.”

Breed wrote that talk of people returning on Sunday prompted the closure order and she said law enforcement will be patrolling the area.

She wrote:

“We know people love Burning Man and people want to get together this weekend. But we all need to do our part. Stay home, stay safe.”
