Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health Directives

 

On March 6, 2020 San Francisco Health Officer Tomas Aragon declared a health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently enacted Health Orders to protect the public health. Health Orders are enforceable laws and are usually accompanied by one or more Directives which provide legally binding instructions for how to comply with the Health Order. The Orders and Directives may also be accompanied by Guidance that provides suggestions and frameworks to facilitate compliance.

 

Health Orders related to COVID-19 are numbered C19-##. When a number is followed by a lowercase letter, the letter shows that the item has been amended.  So C19-07f is the sixth iteration of Order No. C19-07. Health Directives in calendar year 2020 are numbered 2020-## in order of release.

 

As required by health order C19-07f, Appendix C-1 and Appendix C-2, to reopen, businesses must:

Establish a Social Distancing Protocol  ( 中文 | Pilipino | Español )

Distribute the Personnel Screening Handout   ( 中文 | Tiếng Việt | Русский | Pilipino | Español ) to their personnel, and

Implement a Health and Safety Plan (HSP) -- templates for specific businesses to create the HSP are in the table below.
