End of mask mandate in SF County

Question

The City and County of San Francisco currently requires citizens to wear a mask in most public places. This includes stores, restaurants, indoor events and hospitals but, as of Oct 15 2021, excludes places where stable groups of fully vaccinated people gather (e.g. offices, gyms, religious gatherings, lectures).

When will San Francisco County lift their mask mandate?

This question resolves on the date when the mask mandate is lifted such that citizens in SF county are not legally required to wear a mask in public places. In the case where citizens are still legally required to wear a mask in some settings (e.g. they are still required in hospitals), it resolves on the first date when citizens in SF county are not legally required to wear a mask in all of: the CVS store at 601 Mission St; the Chipotle at 525 Market St; and a private, indoor event with 50 people present.

The question will close retrospectively the midnight before an announcement is made or Dec 31, 2023, whichever is earlier.
