According to the University Communications website, The CDC and the County of San Francisco have gotten 'low' levels of COVID-19 transmission for the third week in a row. Starting Tuesday, September 6, San Francisco State University will lift its indoor mask policy, as long as San Francisco remains in the 'low' level of transmission. If the city returns to 'medium' or 'high' it will require masks once again.
San Francisco State University still strongly recommends masking indoors. The University put out a statement saying,
Many members of the campus community will continue to wear masks indoors, and their choice to continue masking must be respected. No one should ever be asked or pressured to remove their mask for any reason. The following areas will continue to require indoor masking: the Student Health Center, the Athletics Training room, Physical Therapy Labs, and Nursing Labs. Community members – students, faculty, staff, administrators, groups, departments, offices, or other units on campus – may not collectively or individually enforce masking requirements on campus other than those listed in point #2.
