During this time of crisis, Supervisor Ahsha Safai’s office worked tirelessly and:

  • Established the COVID-19 Emergency Family Relief Fund of over $10 million for San Francisco residents which would distribute financial help of up to $1,000 for undocumented families
  • Voted to pass emergency legislation to immediately provide two more weeks of paid leave for the city’s healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers will be able to immediately access two additional weeks of fully paid leave if they are affected in any way by COVID-19. This includes if workers demonstrate symptoms, are recommended to self-quarantine, or don't fall in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines for returning to work
  • Passed an emergency ordinance that would apply paid sick leave to any person providing labor or services for remuneration with a presumption that all workers are employees, which includes part-time and temporary employees, persons employed through “Welfare-to-Work Programs,” and individuals who are considered employees under the existing San Francisco Paid Sick Leave Ordinance (“PSLO”)
  • Procured millions of masks and equipment for essential workers and increased pay and protection for our frontline health care workers
  • Fought to open three SFUSD feeding sites, two SF Marin Food Bank distribution sites, partnered with World Central Kitchen to provide 1800 meals a week, and supported increased capacity for partner pantries to collectively serve over 5,000 families each week
  • Distributed 3000 reusable cloth masks and 6000 disposable masks to our neighbors and essential workers
  • Worked with Mayor London Breed and the Department of Public Health to ensure all the staff and patients at the San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living and all nursing facilities across the city have access to regular COVID-19 testing
