POP PANDEMIC SAFETY GUIDELINES
Due to the ongoing pandemics (Covid-19 and the newly-emergent monkeypox), we encourage anyone who is experiencing any of the following symptoms to stay home and isolate: fever, headache, muscle aches, lack of energy, respiratory symptoms, rash.
Being vaccinated and boosted is the best way to prevent infection with Covid-19. Search for a vaccine site here, and request free at-home tests here. Due to current levels of community transmission, masking is currently recommended indoors. Although masks are not required outdoors, we encourage participants to bring them to access restrooms, etc. Get more info on Covid-19 from the PA Department of Health here. Updated info about monkeypox in Philadelphia, including access to vaccines and treatments, is available here.
