A double rainbow appeared behind the eastern span of the Bay Bridge and offered a much-needed glimmer of hope during Day 8 of the Bay Area’s stay-at-home orders.

Though many restaurants and businesses were boarded up around the bay, food-distribution efforts were in full swing. In San Jose, members of the National Guard arrived to help assemble food packages at Second Harvest Food Bank, Choicelunch employees gave distributed food at the company’s drive-through grocery location in Danville, and volunteers loaded bags of food at the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank’s pop-up pantry at Cesar Chavez Elementary School in San Francisco.

There weren’t a lot of people on the streets, though a few people were seen exercising. In Oakland, a lot of homeless people continued to wander the streets aimlessly, seeming to grow increasingly more agitated. At some bus stops, social distancing was not being practiced as a heavy rain started to fall in the late afternoon.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the Bay Area has topped 1,000 as Santa Clara County confirmed three new deaths and an additional 54 positive tests on Tuesday. The number of confirmed Coronavirus cases being treated in Contra Costa County grew to 71 on Monday, health officials said. San Francisco reported 23 new cases on Tuesday while San Mateo County confirmed 19 positive tests.
