|Thank you for your patience and resilience during this unprecedented emergency. As cases and hospitalizations continue to rise, San Francisco has been placed on the State of California’s county watch list as of July 20. This means that San Francisco must abide by the State’s restrictions, which include closing indoor malls and non-essential offices, and continue the paused reopening, at least until the State lifts its restrictions.
Indoor malls and non-essential offices must close, except for minimum basic operations, effective Monday, July 20. If the State adds more restrictions for counties on the watch list, San Francisco will abide by those restrictions as well. If local conditions do not improve, San Francisco maintains the ability to close additional businesses and activities that go beyond the State’s requirements.
If you are experiencing a fever (greater than 100 F/37.8 C), cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, chills, headache, body aches, fatigue, loss of smell, diarrhea, runny nose, and/or congestion, please sign up to get tested here. Please also sign up to get tested if you have participated in any recent protests.
If you are an essential or frontline worker serving the community of San Francisco, you can be tested at any time. You do not need to be experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Essential workers include those who leave their homes to do their job and cannot maintain social distance or who interact with the public.
