San Francisco Bans Reusable Grocery Bags, Returns to Plastic Bags

The notoriously far-left city of San Francisco has reversed its own ban on plastic bags in response to the spread of the coronavirus, now prohibiting the use of reusable bags as a sanitary measure, according to Politico.

The push to ban plastic bags, which leftists have claimed, without evidence, are more likely to cause pollution, had been achieved in many liberal cities, from San Francisco to New York. However, with the fear of spreading the contagious coronavirus, the same bags being used multiple times are more likely to help spread the disease than single-use plastic bags.

The move is the latest action taken by San Francisco and the California state government to combat the virus. The city of San Francisco issued a county-wide stay-at-home order in mid-March, with Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) soon following suit with a statewide order. It is believed that these and other drastic “social distancing” measures have helped to halt the spread of the virus in the nation’s most populous state, which is not nearly as impacted by the disease as other heavily-populated states like New York and Washington state.
