Reusable bags banned in San Francisco and returned plastic bags to stores

San Francisco banned reusable bags and returned plastic bags to stores after a 13-year ban due to a coronavirus pandemic. About this writes the publication SFGate.

Food buyers were banned from bringing fabric bags from the house, as well as mugs and other refillable items. Thus, the authorities are trying to reduce the possibility of infection in public places.

At the same time, the probability that buyers can bring the SARS-CoV-2 virus from their home is still unknown – scientists have not conducted studies on how much the virus can exist on tissue surfaces. It is only known that he lives up to three days on plastic surfaces and for 24 hours on cardboard.

San Francisco is the first major city in the world to officially ban the sale of plastic disposable bags on its territory. Now the deadlines for the ban on reusable bags are still unknown.
