SF to Open Indoor dining, Movies & Museums Next Week
Mayor London Breed tweeted Wednesday that if San Francisco’s low infection rates continue, we will reopen indoor dining, movies and museums on Wednesday March 3rd. According to the Mayor, our city’s “COVID-19 health indicators” will place us in ‘Red Tier’, which means that SF has sustained a lower than 8 new cases of COVID per 100k residents a day.
With the continued improvement of our COVID-19 health indicators, we could move to the state's Red Tier by next Wednesday, March 3rd.
This is a big step forward but we still have need to keep up our progress.

Red tier regulations to Possibly Start March 3rd in SF:
In short, indoor dinning at 25% capacity, indoor gyms at 10% capacity, indoor museums, zoos & aquariums at 25% capacity. Even the GG park ferris wheel is will reopen! And they are lifting the 10pm curfew!
Something drastic would need to happen to the current infection rates to derail the red tier reopen. Breed would never have made an announcement like this unless the outcome was near certain. Marin and San Mateo are the only other Bay Area counties currently in ‘red tier’, everywhere else in the Bay is ‘purple’. As of this morning only 9 in California’s 58 counties are in red tier.
To put this in broader perspective, NY State has had indoor dinning at 25% capacity since February 12th, and their numbers remain low.
