Starting next Tuesday, July 6, face coverings will no longer be required for fully vaccinated visitors entering City Hall and other City facilities, except for certain limited settings such as healthcare, long-term care, public transit, correctional and shelter facilities.

“We continue to align with state guidance on mask requirements. Starting next week, members of the public who are fully vaccinated can remove their masks or face coverings when entering City Hall or other City facilities. However, all individuals are welcome to keep their masks on for added protection,” said City Administrator Carmen Chu. “The health and safety of our staff and the general public is our top priority. We will continue to work closely with state and local health officials to adjust our masking recommendation in City facilities as needed.”

To ensure safety, multilingual signs will be available at all City facilities to remind visitors to wear their masks or face coverings at all times unless they are fully vaccinated. Members of the public can self-attest to vaccination status and can remove their face coverings. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the latest data, San Francisco has 74 percent of its eligible population fully vaccinated, one of the highest rates in the nation. Vaccination is one of the most important and effective ways to protect yourself and your family. Vaccines are safe, effective, and offer protection against COVID-19 and its variants. COVID-19 vaccines are now widely available for people who are 12 years and older who live, work, or learn in San Francisco. Visit SF.gov/get-vaccinated for more information or call 628-652-2700 to book an appointment. You can also email cictvaxcc@sfdph.org if you have any questions about the vaccine.

The City Administrator’s Office will continue to work with state and local health officials to monitor data and science to understand the emerging risks of the Delta variant and will make any adjustments on health and safety protocols as needed to ensure the safety of City staff and the members of the public.
