After months of solitary confinement, San Francisco will bust into the Covid Red Tier on Wednesday.

Bars and indoor dining will be open. Museums will open. Gyms. Food courts in shopping malls! Woo hoo!

At a press conference on Tuesday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, together with Public Health Director Dr. Grant Colfax, announced that the city is shifting into the Red Tier.

The city of San Francisco saw a huge decrease in new coronavirus cases between January and February. In the month of February, the city averaged about 100 cases per day, down from about 250 in January. San Franciscans can now rest easy.

City officials have taken a more conservative approach to reopening than other California counties. San Francisco’s decision to reopen businesses immediately after the city enters the red tier is different from last fall when it moved more slowly than other counties.

Mayor London Breed tweeted out a list of what will open:

Here is Mayor Breed's list:

  • Expanding outdoor dining to allow 3 households of up to 6 people.
  • Allowing personal services that require the removal of masks outdoors and indoors, with specific health and safety measures in place.
  • Opening indoor dining (including bars with full meal service, food courts, hotel restaurants, etc.) at 25% capacity, but limited to up to 4 people from 1 household, requiring that indoor dinner service end by 10pm, and other safety requirements.
  • Opening indoor gyms and fitness centers at 10% capacity.
  • Opening indoor museums, zoos and aquariums at 25% capacity
  • Opening indoor movie theaters at 25% capacity without concessions.
  • Opening outdoor stand-alone amusement park rides such as Feris wheels, carousels, and train rides.
  • Lifting the nighttime restrictions on gatherings and non-essential business activities between the hours of 10pm and 5am.
  • Allowing limited use of indoor pools.

There you have it, San Francisco! It's time to party.
