Dear Businesses and Stakeholders, 

The Union Square BID remains vigilant in monitoring the latest updates from local, state, and federal authorities surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Our administrative offices at 323 Geary, Suite 203 have closed until further notice. Union Square BID staff will be working remotely and can be reached by email

We will continue to provide normal levels of cleaning and safety services, however adjustments may need to be made or temporarily shutdown. We will notify members of service level adjustments should that situation occur. 

If your business has closed or plans to close, we highly recommend you retain a security presence if possible at your location to prevent property damage, theft, and looting.  We will continue our patrols but we can not monitor all the businesses and properties in the district at all times. 

The Union Square BID stands by social distancing advisement and travel restrictions in order to flatten the curve and drastically decrease the spread of COVID-19. 

The USBID will be offering virtual meetings going forward for members, stakeholders and guests to participate in going forward. Please contact us for more information at info@unionsquarebid.com.

Here are some important resources to review for employers and employees. This is a difficult time for all but everyone must remain calm, proactive, and press forward as best we can. 

Stay healthy, 
Karin Flood
Executive Director
