In addition to allowing salons, barber shops, gyms, and massage/tattoo parlors to reopen with limited capacities on Monday, September 14, restrictions on (registered) short-term rentals and hotels in San Francisco will be lifted as well.
Indoor museums, zoos, and aquariums that have implemented a health and safety plan will be allowed to reopen, at limited capacities, on September 21, along with classrooms for TK-6th graders. In-person learning for middle school students could resume in October with high schools allowed to re-open in November.
The timeline for allowing restaurants, bars, clubs, performance spaces, movie theaters, and non-essential offices to re-open remains T.B.D., however, as does the date for lifting the restrictions on real estate showings and open houses.
The detailed timeline – including for religious, political and all other services and activities – as it currently stands: Reopening San Francisco.
UPDATE (9/18): San Francisco will allow restaurants to resume indoor dining at 25% capacity, with up to 100 people, once the city is classified as “orange” (“Moderate” risk) on the State’s tiered “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” system, a move which could occur, at the soonest, at the end of the month with the city currently ranked in the “red” (“Substantial” risk).
UPDATE (9/30): With San Francisco’s risk level having been dropped to “orange” yesterday, restaurants can now resume indoor dining at 25% capacity, up to 100 people; places of worship can operate indoors at 25% capacity for each space, up to 100 people; indoor malls can increase their capacity to 50%; and up to 200 people can gather for outdoor political protests.
