Richard McCoy started this petition to Mayor London Breed and

San Francisco's upcoming shelter in place order unjustly and illogically closes outdoor playgrounds. There is no evidence that playgrounds pose any significant risk for COVID-19.

The CDCCDC recommends that people "Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet away from people you don't live with. Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds." at "parks and recreation areas that are close to your home."

The current shelter in place order allows for golfing and tennis. These two activities historically have been for the wealthy and privilege. It is unfair to the working-class families to have playgrounds closed but have golf courses open. Why are the needs of San Francisco's children disregarded, but the demand for golf is not.

San Franciscans take COVID-19 seriously and have proven that we can sacrifice our individual needs for the greater good. All we are asking for is that restrictions be based on science and fairly applied.

Mayor London Breed, please hold playgrounds in the same regard as golf courses and keep them open.
