COVID-19

NEWS as of 4/1/20 from District 8 Supervisor Mandelman's Office:
We want to be sure you and your businesses are all aware of a new requirement contained in the extended Shelter in Place order that applies to "essential" businesses that are continuing to operate. By Friday April 3, these businesses are required to fill out a Social Distancing Protocol form (https://sf.gov/…/Appendix%20A%20-%20Social%20Distancing%20P…) and post it up at the business entrance and provide it to their employees. I doubt this will be a priority for enforcement, but want to help all our businesses who are remaining open right now stay in compliance with the rules so we don't have any issues down the line.

Here's the latest info on essential business operations under the extended order:

Thank you, and stay well everyone!
