The latest developments around the region related to the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, as of Wednesday morning include:
* Health officers in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties as well as the city of Berkeley extended a shelter-in-place order through May 3 to try to limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in the region. The previous order, issued last month, was set to expire on April 7.
* A new report released Tuesday by San Francisco city leaders projected the city's budget deficit for the upcoming two-year budget could increase to more than $1 billion as a result of the novel coronavirus, primarily driven by losses in hotel and transfer taxes.
* Detective Marylou Armer, a 20-year member of the Santa Rosa Police Department, died Tuesday from complications due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, according to police Chief Ray Navarro.
* City of Oakland officials are making $5,000 grants available to small businesses to help them stay in business through the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
