San Francisco Mayor London N. Breed and Dr. Grant Colfax, Director of Health, announced next steps on Friday for flattening the curve in San Francisco as cases and hospitalizations have continued to rise. The City’s schedule for reopening will remain on pause indefinitely in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in San Francisco and protect community health.

The decision by the San Francisco Department of Public Health to pause reopening comes as San Francisco has been placed on the State’s county monitoring list, or “watch list.” This means that San Francisco must abide by the State’s restrictions, which includes 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.

Dr. Colfax says, “In the past weeks, San Francisco has been experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations that have forced us to pause our reopening plans, increase our testing and contact tracing and care for many more COVID positive patients.”
