Mayor London N. Breed and Dr. Grant Colfax, Director of Health, announced this morning they will provide updates about COVID‑19 and reopening in San Francisco. They will be joined by City officials, and representatives of Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association.

The press conference (which does not appear to be open to the public) takes place at Pier 39 on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 11:00am.

UPDATE: ABC7 reports that San Francisco, Napa and Santa Clara County have all joined the Red Tier as of 3/2/21

For some reason, unlike most other press conferences, this one is not being broadcast live by the city (so you’ll have to watch it on an outlet like KRON4 or ABC7) – but will be posted later in the day on youtube.com/sfgovtv

California is expected today to move San Francisco into the Red Tier (See the latest updates) which means that many more reopenings should be coming soon including indoor dining and the reopening of museums and indoor movie theaters with 25% capacity.

What Happens When SF Enters Orange Tier?
San Francisco is also very close to the “orange” tier which would allow further reopenings. When SF enters the Orange tier, the state will allow bars (who don’t provide meals) to open outdoors, major sports allowed outdoors with 20% capacity restriction and indoor museums, indoor dining and movie theaters will be allowed to expand to 50% capacity.

In order to “advance” a tier, a county must have been in the current tier for a minimum of three weeks. And counties can always opt to be more restrictive than the state allows as happened multiple times with San Francisco during the past year.

Last week, Mayor London Breed hinted about the reopenings on Twitter
