If you were looking forward to drinking out front of your favorite currently closed bar this Monday, we have a dash of bitters for you. In an announcement this morning, San Francisco mayor London Breed said “it is not safe to move forward with the reopenings that were scheduled for next Monday [July 13], including indoor dining.” That also delays the outdoor bar service that was originally scheduled for June 29, was then postponed to July 13, and is now postponed indefinitely.

We still don’t when SF hair salons, nail salons, and massage establishments can reopen. Breed’s full announcement from Tuesday morning states that “The City is currently evaluating other businesses that had been proposed to reopen between June 29 and July 13, including hair salons, barber shops, indoor museums, outdoor pools, gyms, real estate open houses by appointment, and zoos, as part of the Phase 2C reopening. An update on the status of reopening these businesses will be provided by the end of the week.”

The news was leaked yesterday by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, but did not contain information about outdoor bars, salons, and massage establishments.

This does not affect bars and restaurants that are already back open (legally) with patio seating and other permitted arrangements.  Those can remain open as they are, but please be sympathetic toward the staff, as they’re really risking their necks right now.

As of this morning, San Francisco has 4,020 recorded cases of COVID-19 and 50 deaths. “The gradual reopening of local businesses has been on pause since June 26 and will resume when the data indicate that conditions have improved,” says Mayor Breed’s release.
