San Francisco Requires Proof of Vaccination When Indoors

San Francisco will require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for indoor activities including restaurants, bars, and gyms, Mayor London Breed announced Thursday.

Verification of vaccination will be required before entry beginning on August 20th. This order doesn’t include individuals ordering or picking up food or drink to go.

The mandate does not apply to people ineligible to be vaccinated, including children under 12. Breed explained, “The fact that many people are not eligible for vaccination makes it even more important for people who are eligible to do their part to protect the community.”

“The health order also extends vaccination requirements to certain health care providers—including workers at adult day centers, residential care facilities, dental offices, home health aides and pharmacists—who are not already required. This goes into effect October 13,” Breed said.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed tweeted, “Vaccines are our way out of this pandemic. They’re how we can live our lives together, safely.”

Breed continued to tweet, “I ask that people be patient with each other and try to lead with empathy. There will be challenges with this transition and we expect people will do their best to comply, as businesses and residents have done with our previous health orders.”

Supervisor Matt Haney voices support of Mayor Breed’s decision on Twitter.
