Our guiding principles in responding to the COVID-19 emergency are:

  • to quickly deliver resources to help sustain San Francisco businesses and workers as more significant state and federal aid is mobilized, and
  • to help the most vulnerable first

We are tracking all new federal and state legislation and posting information as quickly as possible. We update this webpage daily.

FACT: No racial, ethnic or cultural group is at higher risk for COVID-19. Be smart, don’t discriminate. If you feel you're being discriminated against or need help, contact the Human Rights Commission at or 415-252-2500.
