San Francisco Announces Its Process to Allow Restaurants to Reopen for Indoor Dining

Mayor London N. Breed, Dr. Grant Colfax, Director of Health, and Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu, co-Chair of the City’s Economic Recovery Task Force, today announced San Francisco’s plan for reopening indoor dining. San Francisco will move forward with indoor dining at 25% capacity, up to 100 people, once classified as “orange” on the State’s tiered system, which will occur no sooner than the end of the month. The San Francisco Department of Public Health is developing health and safety guidelines in coordination with the local restaurant industry in order to prepare restaurants for the safest reopening possible.

You can find the official press release here.

While we have a long way to go still to recover, this at least provides a clear, rational framework that we can all use to make decisions about our businesses.

Over the next week, we will work with the Department of Public Health and with city leaders to develop a self-certification process for restaurants and also to help write and clarify any additional safety processes needed for indoor dining.  

We’d like to thank Mayor Breed and her staff, Dr. Aragon and Dr. Colfax for working with the GGRA to make this happen today. We look forward to continued collaboration as we work to finalize the remaining details to implement this next step forward in our recovery. 

Please see the statement that we released today to the press.
