A San Francisco emergency public health order issued on April 17 requires all members of the public to wear a face covering when outside their home and accessing any essential business including health services. To comply with this order, all individuals accessing essential services at our sites are required to wear a face covering that shields the mouth and nose.
As the state of California continues to encourage people to stay home except for essential needs, we want to make sure you have the most accurate information about how to access our services during this time. We’ll update this page regularly.

San Francisco AIDS Foundation remains committed to providing essential services during COVID-19 because we know that people living with and affected by HIV need us now more than ever. We continue to provide onsite services like the emergency provision of PrEP, PEP and HIV care prescriptions, STI testing, and clinical care for people with symptoms of a sexually-transmitted infection or who might have had an exposure to HIV. Our syringe access and disposal services teams are still providing harm reduction supplies to people who would otherwise not have access to these important HIV, hepatitis C and overdose prevention tools. We’re also conducting a majority of our programming virtually, including substance use treatment, case management, social support, and housing subsidies for enrolled participants.
Sexual health services
If you have symptoms of a suspected sexually transmitted infection, would like to be screened for STIs, or have had a recent HIV exposure, please call 415-581-1600 and select option #3 to be connected with the nursing team at Magnet. They will be able to coordinate services and testing for you.
If you do not have symptoms of an STI, but would like to receive a sexual health screening with STI testing, make an appointment Wednesday – Saturday by calling 415-487-8037.
If you are currently receiving PrEP or HIV care from our clinical team, we can extend your prescriptions to cover this time period. To request a refill, call our navigation team at 415-437-3450. PrEP clients are being seen for follow-up visits on a limited basis. You can also email questions about PrEP or follow-up appointments to email@example.com and questions about HIV services to assist4HIV@sfaf.org.
In light of the recent increases in COVID-19 case rates, we are implementing tighter measures to decrease the amount of time that clients spend in the building by requiring that registration questionnaires be filled out prior to entering the clinic. Clients will also receive a COVID-19 questionnaire that must be filled out within 24 hours before their appointment to enter the building. Scheduled visits will be cancelled if both registration questionnaires are not submitted by 9am day of the visit. Click here to log-in to your client portal and complete the questionnaire.
All clients are required to wear masks while in the building. Masks are available if clients do not have access.
