Update (1500ET): San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced on Tuesday that the city has once again postponed the reopening of indoor dining and outdoor bars. Originally, those sectors were expected to reopen on July 13, but city leaders have decided to put those plans on hold as San Francisco is experiencing a spike in COVID-19 cases.

“We have no choice. We are living in COVID,” Breed said during a press conference.

Update (1350ET): After talking around the issue for months, Dr. Fauci came out Tuesday and declared that most municipalities in the US – presumably including those where COVID-19 is a virtual non-issue (yes, they’re still out there) – should adopt mandatory mask-wearing policies.

FAUCI: LOCAL GOVERNMENTS SHOULD ISSUE MASK MANDATES

But Fauci clarified that localities should be able to make their own decisions on the issue because he “doesn’t want to be authoritarian”.

“I don’t like to be authoritarian, from the federal government, but at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important,” Fauci told Alabama Sen. Doug Jones during a Facebook live on his page on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, according to JHU data, the US has surpassed 130,000 COVID-19 fatalities, with 130,751 as of 1400ET.
