Customers who want to drink in San Francisco bars will need to show proof of vaccination or negative Covid-19 tests. The proof of vaccination and test results must be issued within 72 hours. Patrons who prefer to drink outside do not need to show proof.

Increased COVID-19 Cases in San Francisco

The new rules resulted from an increase in COVID-19 cases in California. Specifically, a significant number of bar workers contracted coronavirus. This prompted bar owners to enact stricter measures to prevent the further spread of the virus. As a result, the San Francisco Bar Owner Alliance will require bar patrons to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID tests before allowing them to drink indoors. Otherwise, they can continue drinking in the outdoor area. 

According to a statement issued by the group, the measure will take effect Thursday.  “We believe we are obligated to protect our workers and their families and to offer safe space for customers to relax and socialize,” the statement added.

85% Of Bar Owners Approved The Measure

The San Francisco Bar Owner Alliance, representing around 500 local bar owners, said they polled members before arriving at a decision. The results of the survey showed that 85% of its members agreed with enacting stricter measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The alliance also said that each bar will have the freedom to determine how they will enforce the ruling.  

The rise in COVID-19 cases in the US comes after a new wave of infections hit the country. In particular, the highly contagious Delta variant is spreading rapidly across the US. The variant is responsible for the majority of new cases reported in the country. Meanwhile, vaccination rates among American adults remain stagnant. 

Surge Despite 75% Of San Francisco Residents Already Vaccinated

The resurgence of COVID-19 happened despite the high vaccination rates in the San Francisco area. Nearly three of four San Francisco already completed their vaccinations. Despite the efforts, city health department data showed that coronavirus is slowly regaining its strength. From 10 new cases a day last month, the city is now reporting 118 as of last week. 

In the meantime, Breed hailed the San Francisco Bar Owner Alliance’s decision. She said the group’s rules will help protect employees and customers. The mayor also said last week that all city employees will require proof of vaccination before returning to work.

This echoes what California governor Gavin Newsom mandated for all state government workers.

    Again, I will say this. The tens of thousands of immigrants coming across our Southern borders are carrying in the virus. I have read this over and over again. This admin. seems to think the citizens are the problem when that is not the case. Before any immigrants cross our border they should be vaccinated. Period. And the gov’t. needs to stop bussing or flying immigrants to disperse them all over the U.S. It is like sprinkling the virus over the population that has been doing their best to stay healthy.

  • Cjris says:

    I agree with Robs comments Democrats this is another failure with your leftist policies on immigration. Your President is the cause of this outbreak and failure to motivate Americans to get vaccinated.

  • Tommy Hawkins says:

    Just another move by America towards a repeat of the Holocausts that governments talk against, yet use when they feel it is time for control of the populations.

  • David says:

    If 75% of the residents took the poison then why are numbers “soarimg?” Oh yea, it’s because the gene therapy doesn’t help anyone.

    The swine flu killed 700,000 people around the world in 2009 and 2010. In the US, it infected 61 million Americans, hospitalized over 300,000 and killed more than 18,000, including children and young people. There was no panic. No hysteria. And it was downplayed by the media. No lockdowns. No social distancing. No masks. Obama was President.
    Similar story with the Arian flu when Eisenhower was President. It infected millions of Americans and killed over 116,000.
    The Hong Kong flu during Johnson/Nixon’s reign in 1968 was similar to covid in that it was especially lethal for people over 65. It infected tens of millions of Americans and killed over 100,000. Worldwide, it killed over 4 million. Again, no panic or lockdowns or social distancing.
    What a different world we live in. By now the commies have been indoctrinating our youth for decades and setting the scene to take over. This was so deliberate.

    we are Christian conservatives and support many organizations that are pro American and stand for the U.S. Constitution and our flag. We wish to be “unsubscribed” because we are inundated with emails. Thank you. AP

    This is communism-by-proxy. Look up how many millions of people have been killed in the name of communism, AKA “socialist democracy”. California, especially in the large group-think areas, are highly susceptible to fearmongering and Marxist ideology. Look how many scared people are still wearing masks. Many won’t even recognize the connection as it kills them. Others will recognize it when it’s too late (they’ve contracted a jab-caused chronic or terminal illness).
    The problem is NOT the SARS-CoV-2 virus – the problem is the jab and the follow up “boosters”. I hope you think for yourself. Do the research, stop falling for propaganda.
    I hope you choose to vote with your wallet and never support politicians, businesses, or institutions that push this poison and suppress personal responsibility and freedom. But that’s also your freedom of choice – at least for now until the government takes that away from you. What’s next: limiting the number of children you can have, or what food you’re allowed to buy, or where you can live, or what schools you’re forced to send your children to… You get the idea… Think. Please. Do the research. Of course probably the only people reading this post already do that, but just in case a “progressive” reads this…

    “Demorats” are intentionally dispersing the covid illegals all over the country. If covid cases were only rising in southern border states then our citizens would be able to blame it on open borders. Because cases are in different states, then it’s our fault for not jamming an unstudied, no knowledge of long-term side effects experiment in our arms (& no blame on covid illegals). If they cared about the US, they would require illegals to get the shot instead of giving our “extra vaccine” to other countries. With another possible round of covid, it gives idiot government more time to control us & jam their marxist crap on us while we are too busy trying to maintain an income, not be stressed & not paying attention to what they are doing to us! Who knows what they are doing to us, anything they say is a LIE anyway!!!!!! All they want is money, power & total control. Sad time for our country.
