Susan Philip, MD, MPH, health officer for the city and county of San Francisco, issued orders in February that healthcare workers to be vaccinated and, when eligible, to receive a booster. In addition, she said that healthcare workers must continue “to wear a well-fitted mask at all times when in the same room as patients, clients, residents, or people who are incarcerated.” and strongly recommended use of non-vented N95, KN95, or KF94 respirator masks.

Both orders noted that “violation of or failure to comply … is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.”


While CaliforniaOregon, and Washington plan to drop requirements that healthcare workers wear face masks in indoor health facilities on April 3, San Francisco continues to enforce this rule, along with vaccine requirements.

In the first of two orders issued February 28, Susan Philip, MD, MPH, health officer for the city and county of San Francisco, said healthcare workers must continue “to wear a well-fitted mask at all times when in the same room as patients, clients, residents, or people who are incarcerated,” and strongly recommended use of non-vented N95, KN95, or KF94 respirator masks.

The second order called for healthcare workers to be vaccinated and, when eligible, to receive a booster.

Both orders noted that “violation of or failure to comply … is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.”

San Francisco’s orders on masking and vaccination apply to personnel who work in healthcare facilities, including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities, ambulatory care settings, congregate and jail healthcare facilities, and other parts of jails.

The masking order also applies to people who visit these locations intermittently or for short periods of time, such as delivery people, contractors, regulators, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and police and other law enforcement personnel. It does not apply to patients, clients, residents, or people who are incarcerated and their visitors, although they are strongly recommended to wear a well-fitted mask.

Around the country, mask and vaccine guidance comprises a patchwork of varying state mandates or guidelines. Delaware, Washington, D.C., and Massachusetts, for example, still require masks in healthcare facilities.

For Jeoff B. Gordon, MD, MPH, a retired family doctor in Santa Cruz, San Francisco’s orders are “imperative, and the most basic, wisest guidance there is.”

“I have four high-risk medical conditions, and I find it irresponsible that after the ending of the public health emergency, if I am ill for any reason and call 911, I will be exposed to police, firefighters, paramedics, and facility medical personnel who may not have been vaccinated and most likely are not required to be,” Gordon, who is 81, said.

Many people who are infectious have no symptoms, he added, “and there are obviously more people at risk of COVID than I am.”

Philip’s two orders came on the same day that she issued a third order terminating the county’s COVID-19 public health emergency declaration and rescinding most other pandemic-related directives for the general population. That directive was made possible due to the area’s high rate of vaccination among its more than 800,000 residents, greater availability of effective treatments, and effective use of mitigation such as testing and masking, Philip said.

Court Blocks Biden’s COVID Vaccine Mandate for US Federal Workers

March 26, 2023 NY Post 1

A prior injunction blocked the mandate in January 2022, only a few months after Biden issued the order, but nearly 98% of covered employees had already been vaccinated. Opponents of the policy said it was an encroachment on federal workers’ lives that neither the Constitution nor federal statutes authorize.

Can you imagine how bad these tyrants would be if they actually had complete control over your finances with CBDCs? If you don’t do exactly what they say, they’ll directly deduct money from your bank account, and if you really anger them with your noncompliance, they’ll just turn your account off. Sorry, no food, fuel, or shelter for you! Even worse, they’ll make sure that no one will help you with some of their resources because the good Samaritan may have his account flagged for aiding a “terrorist” enemy of the state.

Good way to ensure that only uninformed, careless, or callous health professionals will be serving in the failing health care system. Good places to stay away from whenever at all possible.

Wait, let me guess, if you don’t agree 100% with what she is doing than NO MATTER YOUR RACE or gender you will be accused of being racist and anti-women right? Well for the record I am a woman of GENUINE minority background and I think what she is doing is an attack on basic common sense and very deeply wrong. Why aren’t her decisions front page news all over San Francisco?

The U.S. Constitution apparently does not apply in California. We keep seeing this repeatedly here and there in the granola state.

yes you would think so but they have proven that they dont care about the constitution, and in addition, even federal law has been on the books for years stating that all Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) products are illegal to mandate and it is also in that same law that they must be INFORMED of their right to REFUSE the EUA products…. and that those offered EUA products can only be given them during a declared emergency. Once the emergency is declared over, it becomes ILLEGAL to even make the EUA product available whatsoever. ILLEGAL. The covid jabs, all masks… Read more »
