With vaccinations high and case rates low, San Francisco’s Safer Return Together Order removes all capacity limits and physical distancing requirements and nearly all operational requirements on businesses.
San Francisco is the first major city in the US to reach this milestone due to a robust citywide vaccination program, which includes mass vaccinations and targeted, data-driven outreach to communities in need.
One of the nation’s first mass testing sites at Pier 32 to close, as SF continues vaccinating its residents and sees continued drop in cases and hospitalizations. Testing to continue in neighborhoods impacted by COVID-19.
Thanks to SF's successful vaccine rollout and low case rates, we intend to align with the State Beyond the Blueprint guidance that removes nearly all local COVID-19 related restrictions beginning June 15, with some exceptions for mega events.
Beginning Thursday, May 6, San Francisco will reopen indoor bars, indoor family entertainment activities, outdoor organized community sporting events and indoor saunas and steam rooms, and will loosen guidelines for a range of activities.
