New business closures and restrictions went into effect on Sunday, August 2, which are associated with being on the State's COVID watchlist. Daly City has developed a no-fee permit process to make it easy for businesses to utilize outdoor space. Restaurants and certain commercial retail/service providers may now offer outdoor operations to their customers. You must work with the City of Daly City to receive a permit for outdoor dining, retail and other services on both private property (like a parking lot) or the public right-of-way (like a sidewalk). For restaurants: In order to offer outdoor dining, you must also offer alternatives like take-out and/or delivery. Start your application today on our Business Resources webpage.
