26 Jan PR&LA Vaccine Information • COVID Testing Options
We have been working closely with our Commerce Department, the Philadelphia BID Alliance, and the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association (PR&LA) to stay as up to date as possible regarding Philadelphia’s Vaccine Mandate.
The PR&LA recently posted a VERY good Q&A session that they held with the city’s Health Department, and because it is so good and informative, I wanted to share with you. Click HERE to read it.
The Philadelphia Commerce Department has created a flier that you can print out if you wish. Click HERE to see and print the flier.
In addition, we were offered another VERY generous opportunity for our businesses within the Hospitality Industry (bars & restaurants).
Through a grant provided by the William Penn Foundation, the PRLA can provide timely access to COVID-19 testing for Philadelphia restaurants and hotels and their employees.
Through this program, PRLA will reimburse employees up to $60 for a COVID-19 test (either at a testing site or through an “at-home” kit).
This program will remain in effect until funds are depleted!
How the Program Works
A Philadelphia restaurant or hotel applies for the program to have COVID-19 testing costs for their employees reimbursed. Employees who have a suspected exposure to COVID-19 can then get a test at any testing location nearby or purchase an “at-home” testing kit. PRLA reimburses the employee (through their employer) for any testing fees up to $60 per test.
Restaurants and hotels located in Philadelphia are eligible for the program and must register for the program with PRLA. Once approved, let your employees know that access to care is available.

If you decide to sign up your business for reimbursement from the PR&LA, please let us know so that we can further assist and follow along on our end.
As you already know, the PR&LA has been a HUGE asset and a great partner to the Mayfair BID! If you are in the hospitality industry and would like to join the PR&LA to further assist them in bringing us programs like this one, as well as other benefits to your business, please click HERE to do so.
