VIDEO: Circles help social distance efforts at SF's Dolores Park
Circles painted on the grass at San Francisco's Dolores Park aim to help with social distancing efforts during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- For picnickers at San Francisco's Dolores Park, there will be no more guesstimating about how close they can be to other visitors.

There are newly painted circles on a section of the park's lawn, intended to keep people six-feet apart.

Droneview7 spotted the circles near the 18th St. side of the park, by the tennis courts.

Dolores Park has been busy during the shelter-in-place order.

Earlier this month, Mayor London Breed threatened to close it due to crowds.

San Francisco seems to have been inspired by a New York City park that painted circles this week.
