Update Applicable to:
All businesses that provide public indoor spaces in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
On April 11, 2022, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health announced that it has moved into the “Mask Precautions” pandemic response level and will reinstate the City’s indoor mask mandate for most indoor spaces.
What are the details?
Effective April 18, 2022, face coverings will be required in all indoor public spaces, including businesses, restaurants, government buildings, childcare settings, and schools. While masks will be required in indoor public places, there is no vaccine requirement for places that serve food or drink.
The mandate will remain in place until the city metrics fall into the “All Clear” category, which takes into account average daily COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and case increases over a 10-day period.
