Will San Francisco bounce back from COVID-19? Mayor Breed envisions bustling, safe city



SAN FRANCISCO, CA – San Francisco’s Mayor London Breed was almost giddy when she announced the city and county would enter the orange tier, allowing many businesses and buildings to significantly increase their capacities.


And she’s hopeful the city can move to the yellow tier in a couple of weeks.

Others however worry that the city may have turned a corner and never return to its former self.



But Breed is emphatic.

“San Francisco is going to come back. This is one of the most significant cities in the Bay Area,” Breed said as she walked down Stuart Street in the Financial District.

“This is where it’s happening, folks are not going to want to stay home forever, and they’re going to want to come back to the city, not just to work, but for our restaurants, for the parties for the events for the sports, the entertainment, the nightlife,” Breed said.


Maybe, but many of the city’s biggest employers are publicly pushing the idea of working from home.
