Keeping Track Of Bay Area Restaurant Reopenings, By County
Here’s the status of restaurant reopenings in every Bay Area county.
Written by

Last August, California started using a color-coded risk level assessment to determine a county’s reopening status. Indoor and outdoor businesses, like restaurants and gyms, that are allowed to reopen depend on the county’s risk level, classified as “widespread” (purple), “substantial” (red), “moderate” (orange), or “minimal” (yellow).

In December, the state introduced a regional stay-at-home order, which was triggered when ICU capacity dropped below 15%. Under the order, the Bay Area closed outdoor dining and other non-essential businesses for almost two months. On January 25th, Governor Gavin Newsom lifted the stay-at-home order, reverting counties back to the color-coded risk assessment system.

Currently, San Francisco County is in the orange tier, along with most other Bay Area counties. Below you’ll find information about reopening dates, and what’s open for dine-in, broken down by county. We’ll be updating it as we get more information, so keep checking back.
