Community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 was first reported in San Francisco on March 5, 2020, followed shortly thereafter by initial shelter in place recommendations and shelter in place mandates on March 16, 2020.[8] On March 24, 2020, the Health Officer of the City and County of San Francisco ordered all clinical laboratories testing for SARS-CoV-2 infection to electronically report all positive and nonpositive test results for COVID-19 to the local health department. Here, we present data, using descriptive statistics, from a match of the San Francisco Department of Public Health COVID-19 testing and case database and the San Francisco Department of Public Health HIV Surveillance case registry performed on September 3, 2020 (6 months after the first case).
