Due to the further extension of Shelter in Place Public Health Orders issued by the City and County of San Francisco on May 22, 2020 to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ethics Commission’s physical offices remain closed until further notice. Commission operations are continuing remotely with phone, email, and online assistance.

The City and County of San Francisco has issued a series of Public Health Orders to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the community. The City’s initial Shelter in Place Order went into effect at midnight on Tuesday, March 17 and subsequent Orders have further amended and extended restrictions to require San Franciscans to remain at home and exempt only identified limited essential activities and needs as specified in the Public Health Orders.

The Ethics Commission regular monthly meeting scheduled for Friday, June 12 has been cancelled due to the further extension of the City’s Public Health Orders. The Commission remains open for business and staff continue to assist with filing guidance, online disclosure tools and resources, advice, and compliance assistance, among its other duties.

During this period, Commission staff continue to monitor and respond to phone inquiries, emails, and online submissions as needed. Those who contact the Commission may experience wait times for responses to requests.
