As things begin to open back up, restaurants in San Francisco will soon be  allowed to offer sit-in dining. All dining must be done outside and restaurants will be enforcing social distancing. This order will begin as soon as this Friday, June 12th!

All customers will need to wear a face mask until they are seated and anytime they leave their table for things like the bathroom. Customers will not be allowed indoors unless they are placing an order, using the restroom, or crossing to get outdoors. Tables will be limited to six people, with exception of larger groups that have been sheltering in place together.

Restaurants may also apply for permits to operate on side walks, parking lanes and even parks and plazas!
