Proof of Vaccination and Masks Required

To maximize the health and safety of Rotarians, guests, speakers, staff at the Hotel Nikko (where we meet), and those who may potentially be in a high-risk category for complications due to COVID-19, the Rotary Club of San Francisco REQUIRES all members and guests, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face covering mask during the meeting except while eating.

On August 12, 2021, the City and County of San Francisco placed proof of COVID-19 vaccination on patrons entering establishments where food/beverages are served. Acceptable proofs of vaccination include the CDC vaccination card, a physical or digital copy of that card, documentation from a healthcare provider, or a personal digital COVID-19 vaccination record issued by the State of California. Businesses subject to this new requirement must cross check proof of full vaccination against each patron’s photo identification. 

The Club believes that these policies are consistent with Rotary's Four-Way Test as well as with the current guidelines of the CDC and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
