COVID 19 Citywide Information

The City of San Francisco takes the health and well-being of our community extremely seriously. We are taking extensive and proactive actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our most vulnerable populations.


Know the facts: Risk for COVID-19 is based on travel, contacts and exposure to the virus. No racial, ethnic or cultural group is more at risk. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you are feeling sick, please first call your doctor, a nurse hotline, or an urgent care center. Do not go to the emergency room of a hospital unless you are having an actual emergency.        


Stay at home: The City has issued a Public Health Order requiring people to stay home except for essential needs. Vulnerable populations, including adults over the age of 60 and people with health conditions, must stay home. Everyone else is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. Stay at least 6 feet apart if leaving your home for essential activities.
