Effective today, November 29th San Mateo & San Francisco Counties will move from the red tier to the purple tier, the most restrictive on the State’s four-tier Covid-19 reopening plan. In an effort to control the recent surge of Covid-19 cases across the Bay Area and state, San Mateo County and San Francisco County businesses will need to revisit how they are operating their business in order to comply with the State’s operating requirements. Under the purple tier restrictions, businesses and activities that may have been operating indoors – including places of worship, gyms, or movie theaters, must either operate outdoors or close. Other businesses will have to operate at a lower capacity (25%) in order to limit the spread of Covid-19.
Additionally, this transition to the purple tier will subject San Mateo and San Francisco Counties to a curfew that will prohibit residents from leaving their homes to gather with other households from 10 pm to 5 am beginning Monday, November 30th at 10 pm. During these hours, no gatherings will be allowed among households, with certain exemptions.
