SF Vaccination and Mask Mandate Update | Masks Optional 10/15/2021

Proof of Vaccination Required for Entry, Mask Mandate Lifted + Updated Policies


Hello Community,

As you know, masking requirements are being lifted as of October 15th for offices, gyms, and certain other settings with 100% full vaccination. That means masks are no longer required at Rae Studios. This update still requires proof of vaccination to enter our studio.

The proof of vaccination does not apply to individuals ineligible for vaccinations, including children under 12 years old. Everyone must still comply with the applicable indoor mask mandate for wider public events 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 regardless of 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.

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.

We've already brought back our Hybrid model for some classes, which allows our students to take classes in-person or from the safety of their homes. This will help keep reservations as high as possible and, most importantly, keep Rae Studios in business. This is a necessary step to ensure everyone's health and safety. This means that hybrid classes will have a virtual station set-up in Studio 1 & Studio 2. Please note, this action plan will be our temporary solution until cases decrease and masks mandates are fully 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 as 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,
