Required Poster for Essential Businesses

Updated: Apr 13, 2020

For all essential businesses that are remaining open during the extended Shelter-In-Place in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, SF, San Mateo & Santa Clara, the new order requires you fill out a form regarding your safety measures for employees and customers and post it somewhere visible to the public by midnight on Thursday, APRIL 2. You can download a PDF of that HERE. Or contact us and we'll send you a version you can fill out. If you aren't able to fill it out, we will help. Call or email for assistance.

What are "Essential Businesses"?

From what we understand from this SF County Health Order publication from March 31, restaurants and bars can continue to operate on take-out and delivery basis only (with the above notice posted). Restaurants and grocery stores that do substantial food sales are allowed and encouraged to stay open, if possible.

What about bars?

Gatherings are prohibited, but it doesn't state that bars must close completely. That being said, this is uncharted territory liability-wise and bars are NOT expressly defined as "essential" without substantial food, so if you're concerned, you should consult your attorney or just play it safe.

That is all. We love you.
