Is my San Francisco bathroom required to have an exhaust fan?

SF renter here. The bathroom in my apartment has a window but no fan. The window opens onto an outdoor space that gets little breeze. Recently in the humid weather, my shower has began to smell like mildew even though I've scrubbed it down. This SFGate article
says SF bathrooms with showers or tubs are required to have a mechanical fan. Is this only for newly-built houses or does this apply to all homes?

Not sure when my apartment was built but I'd assume 1950s or '60s. I'd like to know if my landlord is breaking some sort of code OR if not, what else I can do to ventilate my foggy bathroom.
