The Golden Gate Bridge District (District) is closing parking lots at the Golden Gate Bridge to the public as a precautionary measure to avoid crowding during the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place public health orders. Bridge parking lots will remain closed to the public seven days a week for the duration of the shelter-in-place orders.
Bridge visitorship has declined dramatically since the shelter-in-place orders went into effect on March 17. This is good news that demonstrates the public is largely obeying the orders, helping our communities stay healthy and safe during this crisis. We encourage the public to keep up the good work and stay home through the duration of the shelter-in-place orders.
In addition to the parking restrictions, the District has placed ample signage around entrances to the Bridge to encourage people to stay home and practice social distancing if they must be out in public. Bridge security staff will continue to monitor pedestrian and bicycle traffic to ensure social distancing is maintained on the Bridge sidewalks.
