Support for Frontline & Essential Workers

I have made it a priority to ensure that private sector employees have paid sick leave. I 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. In addition, we 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. This 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”).

 I have also worked hard to ensure all frontline and essential workers have access to the PPE that the City acquired. Through private donations, I have also acquired 6,000 masks for the residents of District 11 that I have personally delivered across my community.

Support for the Homeless

Supervisor Safai has worked with the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing to secure a daily food delivery for the residents at the safe parking program in the district. The Supervisor and his team have also coordinated private donations for the residents on site such as toiletry kits, blankets, and non-perishable food items.

 If there is someone who would like to inquire about donating to the safe parking program, they can contact Monica Chinchilla at monica.chinchilla@sfgov.org. 

During shelter in place, the Department of Homelessness is no longer accepting referrals for new placement in their shelters. They have been actively reaching out to unhoused residents to ensure they have hygiene kits and are maintaining proper social distancing.
