Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health Directives

 

Safer Return Together

On September 10, 2021, the San Francisco Health Officer revised Health Order C19-07y -- Safer Return Together to make clear that masking and regular testing is not as protective of public heath as full vaccination.  Masking and regular testing are minimum safety requirements.  The update further clarifies that covered businesses and governmental entities may require additional safety measures for those exempt personnel.  It lists a number of factors employers may consider. In addition, the Order makes clear it doesn’t limit the ability of any covered  business or governmental entity under applicable law to determine whether they are unable to offer a reasonable accommodation to unvaccinated personnel with an approved exemption. A Redline is available. C19-07y will continue until amended or rescinded by the Health Officer. Please see the FAQ for more information on C19-07y.

Note: On June 15, 2021, the California Blueprint for a Safer Economy was replaced by statewide COVID-19 guidance for certain settings. The San Francisco Health Officer's declaration of a health emergency arising from the pandemic will continue to be in effect.
