Philadelphia has been in some form of coronavirus quarantine since March 16, 2020.

Local health officials report that citizens are currently at high risk of community transmission, and, as cases begin to rise again, a revamped set of “Safer at Home” restrictions will begin on November 20, including the closing of museums, gyms and schools, and indoor dining is banned.

To date, more than 61,400 people have been infected with Covid-19 in Philadelphia, and more than 1,950 Philadelphians have died from the virus. You can keep track of the total here. You can find testing sites here.

You can stay on top of the City of Philadelphia’s regular updates on the coronavirus epidemic here, along with a variety of resources and services to help you get through this experience.
