(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) San Francisco became one of the first cities in the nation to ban plastic bags in 2007, but now the coronavirus pandemic has forced the progressive stronghold to reverse course by banning reusable bags and mandating that customers use plastic bags.

As part of the city’s shelter-in-place order, grocery stores must not permit “customers to bring their own bags, mugs or other reusable items from home,” Politico reported.

San Francisco will force recycling proponents to use single-use plastic bags so that germs are not transmitted from the much-dirtier reusable bags to food and other customers.

The entire state of California banned single-use plastic bags in 2016.
