Have you noticed how empty the streets are? Or how empty public transportation has been. Big tech companies bring in a lot of people from around the world to work creating congested traffic, packed trains, and busses.
Some Bay Area companies have been asking people to work from home if possible. Those companies include: Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Lyft, Intel, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and HP. San Francisco and other counties around the bay have been banning large gatherings for the next couple of weeks.
Many streets seem to be empty around San Francisco. A lot of locals are really enjoying this time, but many are worried and shocked from seeing empty places.
