San Francisco and Los Angeles Two Years into the Pandemic


After 2 years of living in the pandemic, so many things have changed and more will happen as time goes by. As countries have been dealing with lockdowns, restrictions and vaccinations, what could Asian Americans in San Francisco and Los Angeles expect in the new normal that the world is experiencing?

U.S. President Joe Biden’s White House said that it is time for the country to put a stop to the coronavirus dictating how life should be lived. This month, the U.S. government released the National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan that will pave the way for the country to progressively move forward with safety, keeping in mind to sustain and build on the improvements made in the past 13 months.

This move by President Biden will greatly help the San Francisco and Los Angeles community along with other states in the country as it deals with 4 key goals, namely: Protect and Treat COVID-19, Prepare for New Variants, Prevent Economic and Educational Shutdowns and Continue to Vaccinate the World.

In Los Angeles, public school students in the Unified School District are allowed not to wear masks. Along with this, students as well as the staff will be tested weekly through the end of the school year based on the agreement. This action was done in correspondence with the decrease in the number of cases across the country. Although a statewide school mask mandate was lifted, individual districts could still choose to implement their rules in place for a prolonged period of time.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, Mayor London Breed has taken steps to bring back workers in the downtown area. BloomSF is a weeklong celebration happening from March 27 to April 2. It is part of Mayor Breed’s Downtown Recovery Plan and Welcome Back to SF Program that will feature live entertainment and many more. Many Asian American workers would be able to enjoy this celebration as the state bounces back its businesses.

Despite the fact that the world is still in a pandemic, concrete actions can surely go a long way. Many Asian Americans are pushing for change in terms of discrimination and hate. With the national government laying out its plans and state officials laying out plans for its citizens in the pandemic, the Asian American community in San Francisco and Los Angeles can expect that the hope for change is still alive.
