Dear Business Owner:

We created this packet of information regarding the City’s COVID-19 vaccine card requirement for you. This packet includes a couple of notices that you can post to your business entrance. 

I encourage you to sign up for PCDC’s Commercial Corridor newsletter and add PCDC on WeChat, where we share upcoming PCDC events and programs including small business assistance/resources.

According to the City of Philadelphia, starting January 3, 2022, any establishment in Philadelphia that sells food and/or drink for consumption onsite may admit only those patrons who have completed their vaccine series against COVID-19.

Social Distancing for Essential Businesses During COVID-19 Coronavirus

The City of Philadelphia strongly recommends the following precautions to protect yourself, your employees, your patrons, and the broader community: 

In accordance with the Philadelphia Health Department, to make sure that your business continues to provides goods and services, while also keeping your customers and clients safe, we highly recommend using the following guidelines for your stores:

  • For pick up and delivery, having customers and delivery men wait in a designated area that gives each individual at least 6 feet of space to the next person. 
  • Consider limiting the number of people in the store at one time. This includes any atrium and other areas that would have people waiting in tight spaces. Consider implementing the “nightclub model” of setting a maximum capacity and assigning staff to manage the number of people entering. Once maximum capacity has been reached, staff can allow more customers inside as others leave to maintain the maximum capacity and help customers shop safely. It is recommended to also encourage social distancing if lines form.
  • Social distancing recommendations must be met (i.e., limit contact of people within 6 feet from each other). Consider: floor markings and visual cues to help customers keep a six-foot distance, only operating every other register or check-out lane, ensuring work space between workers is at least 6 feet.
  • Whenever possible, encourage customers to call ahead or place orders online so that staff can select and pack up groceries for customers to pick up or have delivered. Ensure customers who use SNAP have access to the same delivery services and pick up options whenever possible. 
  • Schedule handwashing breaks every 30-60 minutes. Employees should wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Assign a relief person to step in for cashiers so they can wash their hands with soap for a full 20 seconds. Provide hand lotion so workers’ hands don’t crack.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):List of Business Suppliers

Businesses that are looking to purchase PPE to keep their business safe for staff and customers, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development has compiled a directory of PPE and supplies vendors, “Pennsylvania COVID-19 PPE & Supplies Business-2-Business (B2B) Interchange Directory”.
The directory includes vendors that sell N95 Masks, Fabric & Other Masks, Surgical Masks, Thermometers, and Hand Sanitizer.

About the Interchange Directory:
Company and product information provided in this directory were gathered in good faith as a means of connecting Pennsylvania businesses and organizations that are seeking various PPE and other related items to combat the COVID-19 crisis. The information made available is from those entities who voluntarily contacted the commonwealth through the Manufacturing Call to Action Portal or the Pennsylvania Critical Medical Supplies Procurement Portal.
The immediate goal of this B2B Interchange Directory is simple: to provide an opportunity for companies and other entities in need of PPE and other critical items to make a B2B connection as they may choose with manufacturers and suppliers of COVID-19 related items.

  • 強制要求員工在工作場所戴口罩
  • 要求所有客戶在場所內戴口罩,並拒絕未戴口罩的個人進入,除非企業在提供藥品,醫療用品或食物,在這種情況下企業必須提供替代的方式來提取或運送此類物品
  • 鼓勵使用在線訂購,為客戶提供取貨和送貨服務
  • 提供足夠的空間供員工休息和進餐,同時保持6英尺的社交距離,安排座位,使員工在進餐和休息時避免與他人面對面而坐;
  • 在可行的情況下,企業應僅通過預約與公眾進行業務往來,在不可行的情況下,企業必須將場所內部的人員控制在正常人數(證書上規定的人數)的百分之五十以下。為了減少業務場所的擁擠,必須在結帳和櫃檯線處保持6英尺的社交距離,並且必須在每個點上放置標牌,以強制客戶和員工保持必須的距離。



———————————– 此消息更新于4/22/2020 ———————————–


但是,無論是否選擇經營,被視為必要的商戶,即 Essential Businesses(例如食品服務)都要照常繳納使用和占用稅。



2020年3月19日,州長湯姆·沃爾夫(Tom Wolf)下令賓夕法尼亞州所有非維持生命的企業在晚上8點之前關閉其營業地點,以減慢COVID-19的傳播速度。從3月21日星期六凌晨12:01開始,對沒有遵守關閉令的商業實行強制措施。





– 電話號碼-有效的電子郵件-雇主的​​​​​​姓名,地址和電話號碼-受僱時間(第一天到最後一天)
– 離開的原因-退休金或遣散費信息(如果適用)
打電話 Call:215-922-6156週一至週五, 早上9點半至下午6點






  • 提貨和送貨:請客戶和送貨人員在指定區域等候,該區域內人和人之間至少保持6英尺的距離。
  • 考慮限制每次進入商店的人數。這包括店內所有的空間。考慮實施“夜總會模式”,即設置最大容量並分配人員來管理進入的人數。一旦達到最大容量,員工就得等有人離開以後再放人進去,以保持顧客的安全。如果排隊,也建議保持足夠的距離。
  • 建議大家嚴格保持社交距離(即,將彼此間的距離限制在6英尺之內)。請考慮:用地板標記和視覺提示的方法幫助客戶保持六英尺的距離,收銀機或結賬通道之間也應保持至少6英尺的距離。
  • 盡可能鼓勵客戶提前電話訂購或在線訂購,以便員工可以有時間為客戶備貨或送貨。確保使用SNAP的客戶享有同樣的服務。
  • 安排員工每30-60分鐘洗一次手。員工應使用肥皂和水至少洗20秒鐘。指派一名人員暫替收銀員,以便他們有時間洗手。提供洗手液,以確保工人的手不會破裂。
