SAN FRANCISO, CA. – (JULY 20, 2020) – The Hotel Council of San Francisco, the California Hotel and Lodging Association, the American Hotel & Lodging Association and the former chief of the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health will announce a major response to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ so-called “Healthy Buildings” ordinance. The ordinance, approved July 7 and signed by Mayor Breed on July 17, will:

  • Endanger the health of hotel employees by mandating increased contacts with guests.
  • Fail to align with widely recognized federal and state infectious disease experts’ health guidelines for hotels.
  • Do financial harm to a specific industry that has an outstanding health safety record.
  • Ignore San Francisco’s environmental laws and mandates.
  • Serve the selfish interests of a union with no consideration of the employee harm it mandates.

Kevin Carroll, President and CEO, Hotel Council of San Francisco

Lynn S. Mohrfeld, CAE, President & CEO, California Hotel & Lodging Association

Chip Rogers, President & CEO, American Hotel & Lodging Association
