SF Vaccination and Mask Mandate | Studio Policies & Operations

Updated: Aug 19, 2021

Updated 8/19/2021

Proof of Vaccination Required for Entry, Virtual Class, In-Studio, Hybrid Class offerings + Updated Policies


Hello Community,

As you know, San Francisco County Health Officials reinstated the mask mandate for all indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status; effective Tuesday 8/3/21. Due to the rise of the Delta-variant, starting 8/20/221, San Francisco County Health Officials REQUIRES everyone to show proof of vaccination and wear a mask for all indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.

The new requirements for proof of vaccination do not apply to individuals ineligible for vaccinations, including children under 12 years old. Everyone must still comply with the applicable indoor mask mandate under local and state health safety measures, regardless of vaccination status.

We'll be checking vaccination cards at our entrance. (Digital image of your vaccination card is acceptable). Individuals are considered fully vaccinated after two weeks from receiving their second dose (or first shot of J&J). Getting a vaccination is quick, easy, safe. And it's free, immigration or insurance status. Vaccinations are available at your local hospital, CVS, Walgreen, Safeway, and more. Both walk-ins and appointments are available. Visit for more info.

We've already brought back our Hybrid model for some classes, which will allow our students the opportunity to take classes in-person or from the safety of their homes. This will also allow more opportunities to keep reservations as high as possible, and most importantly, keeping Rae Studios in business. This is a necessary step to ensure everyone's health and safety.

As of Monday, August 9th, Rae Studios has shifted some of our in-studio classes to a Hybrid format. These class updates are live on our website, MindBody, and ClassPass.

This means that those classes currently held in-studio will have a virtual station set-up in Studio 1 & Studio 2, to accommodate our virtual students, while also allowing our students the option to continue training in-person. Please note, this action plan will be our temporary solution until cases decrease and masks mandates are lifted.

While we continue to make changes to our operations and schedule, we ask that you check the MindBody app to see the latest updates since Monday, August 9th. Please note that third-party app users, such ClassPass and FitReserve, will have access to only livestream classes. All In-studio classes must be purchased through our website or through the MindBody app,
