The Department of Human Resources advised that on Monday, August 21, 2023, the City will sunset the COVID-19 Vaccination Policy which requires that employees must be fully vaccinated and report their vaccination status to the City as a condition of employment.
Please note there are two health orders that were issued on February 28, 2023, which remain in effect:
- Mandatory Masking of Personnel in Healthcare and Jail Settings (Health Officer Order 2023-01). This Order requires Personnel working in designated Healthcare Facilities and Jails—meaning general acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities, other types of ambulatory care settings, congregate and jail health facilities, and other parts of jails, to wear a Well-Fitted Mask at all times when in the same room as Patients, Clients, Residents, or People Who are Incarcerated as described in this Order.
- Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination of Healthcare Personnel (Health Officer Order 2023-02). This Order requires Personnel working in designated Healthcare Facilities—meaning general acute care hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities, other types of ambulatory care settings, and congregate and jail health facilities, to both receive the full initial course of vaccination and, once they are eligible, to receive a Booster.
Employees (permanent civil service status) who separated from City employment for not being vaccinated can request for Reappointment. The Request for Reappointment Form https://sfdhr.org/sites/default/files/documents/Forms-Documents/Employee-Request-for-Reappointment.pdf
