The public health order was issued by San Francisco's Health officer and just days after San Francisco officials banned events with more than 1,000 people.
Bars like Midnight Sun closed its doors on Friday. San Francisco live concert lounge - DNA also announced that it's closing for three weeks.
"It's meant that I've had to put a good chunk of my staff on a little bit of a vacation. We are paying them for half of the hours that they were scheduled for these events," said Doven Dossett, DNA's Lounge Manager.

"The mayor said you know we are deferring business taxes to later into the year. That's a massive move that allows businesses $20-$30,000 back and allows them to use it on things like rent and keep their employees going," said Cheng.
Tonic Bar's owner Ben Bleiman says cleanliness is their number one priority and then how to stay afloat.
"A month or two and we will probably apply for SBA (Small Business Administration) loan to get us flowed though and use our cash reserves and pray that we don't go out of business," said Bleiman.
