SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 at indoor restaurants, bars, gyms, and entertainment venues.

Mayor London Breed said Thursday that it's needed to protect the health of workers, customers, and the city overall.

The mandate is more stringent than the requirement announced by New York City's mayor last week. San Francisco will require proof of full vaccination for all customers and staff, while New York is requiring proof of at least one dose for indoor activities.

San Francisco's rule takes effect on Aug. 20.

The mandate does not apply to people ineligible for vaccines, including kids under 12.
