The latest developments around the region related to the novel 
coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Monday afternoon include: 

Six Bay Area jurisdictions slightly relaxed the region's COVID-19 
coronavirus shelter-in-place order Monday, allowing multiple industries to resume operations and retail businesses to offer storefront pick-up.   

Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and Santa Clara counties and the city of Berkeley announced the modifications to the order after multiple indicators showed recent progress toward curbing the spread of the virus. 

Specialty's Cafe & Bakery, a Pleasanton-based chain that had 
locations around the West Coast and as far away as Chicago, announced Sunday that it is going out of business after 33 years, an apparent victim of the novel coronavirus health emergency.  

It's last day of operation would be Tuesday, the company said in an announcement posted Sunday on its website. 

Three additional new COVID-19 coronavirus testing sites will open 
in San Francisco
, all aimed at serving people in the some of the city's neediest areas, Mayor London Breed announced Monday. The new sites, which open this week, include a mobile testing site, one at City College of San Francisco and another to serve the city's Bayview and Hunters Point communities. 

The off-Broadway company San Francisco Playhouse announced on Sunday that its remaining productions of the 2019-2020 season will be suspended, to keep its performers, staff and audiences safe from the COVID-19 coronavirus.  San Francisco Playhouse's presentations were scheduled for July 1-Sept. 12.
