San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney announced on Twitter that the City will enter the least restrictive Yellow Tier on May 7, 2021. May 6, 2021 UPDATESan Francisco is allowing Yellow Tier reopenings a day earlier, on May 6.

He notes that “Under state guidelines, in the yellow tier: Restaurants, movie theaters, libraries, offices, churches, family entertainment centers, gyms and fitness studios and can open indoors at 50% capacity. Indoor bars, breweries and wineries can open at 25% capacity up to 100 people.

This will be the first time since the pandemic started that bars have been allowed to open for indoor service.

Thanks to SFist for laying out the specifics on the rule changes. Larger bars must cap capacity at 100 patrons. Food is no longer required for service, but customers must be seated a table. While outdoors, masks are no longer required, but they will need to be on when you head indoors like when you head to the restroom.
