SF Indoor Dining Won’t Open Until At Least March 2

The state might soon allow San Francisco to open indoor dining again at 25% capacity

Although the latest covid data released by the state of California on February 23, 2021 show San Francisco firmly in the less restrictive “red tier,” San Francisco is still in Purple and won’t be eligible for further reopenings until it is in the red tier for two consecutive weeks.

San Francisco currently has a 1.9 test positivity rate (good for the “yellow” tier),  and a 5.2 adjusted case rate (good for the “red” tier) and 4.2 “Heath Equity” rate (good enough for the “orange” tier).

Given the rapid decline in rates, it’s possible that San Francisco could quickly move into the Orange tier soon after the Red Tier.

The SF Gate reports that the San Francisco COVID Command Center said in a statement that the earliest the city could advance to the red tier would be March 2.

Even if the state does move San Francisco into the red tier (which would allow for indoor dining at 25% capacity as well as movie theaters and indoor museums), the city can still opt for more restrictions as it has done multiple times in the past.

Indoor dining opened initially on September 30th but has been shut down in San Francisco since November 13, 2020.
