Governed by state law, local governments normally can’t exert control over commercial leases. But having been enabled by an Executive Order issued by Governor Newsom back in March (N-28-20), and then extended in June, San Francisco was able to enact an eviction moratorium for small and medium-sized businesses, effectively defined as businesses with up to $25 million in pro-rated gross receipts in 2019, which have been directly impacted by the pandemic.
But unless Governor Newsom extends the State’s Executive Order, which is set to expire at the end of this month, San Francisco’s commercial eviction moratorium will expire on September 30. And unlike San Francisco’s moratorium on residential evictions, landlords will not be restricted from evicting businesses for past due rents, with a one-month grace period to cure, once the commercial moratorium expires.

The Testing Wars Have Begun: Oakland Airport Wants To Attract Passengers With Free Rapid Covid Testing - View from the Wing
It was only Thursday that United Airlines announced they would offer rapid coronavirus testing at the airport in San Francisco for passengers taking its Hawaii flights. Testing would be available by appointment, with results available in 15 minutes, and the airline hoped the $250 price point would come down in the near future.
Since then Hawaiian Airlines also announced same day airport testing coming for its passengers for $150. The State of Hawaii plans to allow people to enter the state without 14 day quarantine starting October 15, provided they present a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of arrival. United says the state will accept their Abbott rapid tests.
Now Oakland airport is announcing that its Hawaii passengers can get rapid tests for free starting October 15.
