San Francisco 10-Day Travel Quarantine Order

LatinXinAI Coalition Town Hall Meeting // SF

San Francisco announced a mandatory 10-day quarantine for anyone coming into the city from outside the Bay Area.

Residents from San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, Marin, and Santa Cruz counties are EXEMPT!

But, the order strongly discourages non-essential travel between those counties and San Francisco as well. The order begins Dec. 18 at midnight and ends Jan. 4, 2021, with the possibility of an extension if hospital capacity continues to plummet.

Anyone found to be violating the order could face a fine, imprisonment, or both, according to the city. See video below.



The travel quarantine order, which will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and last until at least 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 4, applies to people, including returning residents and those moving to the city, who spent any time outside the following nearby counties:

San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Solano, Sonoma, Napa, Marin and Santa Cruz.

“COVID-19 cases are surging in San Francisco and across the country,” Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “Hospitals in the Bay Area are close to being overwhelmed. We must do whatever we can to contain the virus and stop its circulation in our community. Now is not the time to travel and risk being exposed or exposing others. We need to do the right thing to protect ourselves, our neighbors and our loved ones and make sure that we can celebrate together when this is over.”

Those who have to quarantine have to stay home and not physically interact with others outside their household. They are not allowed to go to work, school or any other place outside their home. They should have food and other essential items delivered to them.

There are some limited exemptions, including for medical professionals, first responders and those with official government business. Travelers passing through San Francisco International Airport and not staying in the city overnight do not have to quarantine.
