As you likely have heard by now, Philadelphia is looking ahead to the green phase of reopening. COVID-19 daily case counts are falling, residents are wearing masks, and hospitalizations are dropping.
This Friday, we’ll reopen more businesses and restart more activities—still as part of the yellow phase. If our progress continues, we will be ready to carefully enter the green phase in early July.
Even in the green phase, we will still restrict some activities that are allowed by the state, and we’ll have stricter guidance. We don’t want to see a second wave, as many states are now experiencing.
Philly: You didn’t just flatten curve—you suppressed the virus and saved thousands of lives. Thank you for your perseverance. Let's continue our progress.
Yours in service,
Mayor of Philadelphia
