SAN FRANCISCO, CA --- 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.

Assessor Carmen Chu, co-chair of the Economic Recovery Task Force, issued the following statement:

“I grew up waiting tables at my parent’s family restaurant. Knowing first-hand what it takes to keep a business going, it’s been my priority to find pathways for businesses to reopen and stay in San Francisco. The next step will be to work in the coming week with public health and restaurants to ensure we have clear guidelines for how we can more safely operate indoors for workers and customers.”
