Stay up to date with the City of Philadelphia COVID-19 guidelines. Please see the website for details.

At the Navy Yard, our top priority is the health and well-being of employees, staff, shuttle riders, event attendees, and community. As the situation regarding COVID-19 coronavirus continues to evolve, the Navy Yard Management Office is staying in close contact with our local and regional partners. We continuously review and assess the recommendations and requirements put out by the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health, as well as the World Health Organization and the CDC, and implement necessary precautions and protective steps. 

You can take steps to slow the spread of the illness by becoming informed about the recommendations by the CDC to keep yourself, your family, and your colleagues safe. The City of Philadelphia’s Department of Public Health has set up a COVID-19 website that has more detailed advice for specific situations, which will be updated frequently. The City of Philadelphia has issued planning guidance for businesses and nonprofit organizations to both protect employees’ health and safety and limit the economic impact of the outbreak. The guidance will assist businesses in preparing for continuity of critical operations if the COVID-19 coronavirus has a severe impact on Philadelphia. 

Anyone may text COVIDPHL to 888-777 to receive updates from the City of Philadelphia to your phone.
