Isolation & Quarantine Referral

San Francisco issued our first Stay at Home order on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and our continued aggressive strategy has effectively reduced the spread of COVID-19 and protects vulnerable populations and the community at large.

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.
