Eating and drinking inside Philadelphia restaurants is now a bit easier under the city’s new system, as proof of coronavirus vaccination is no longer required under the city’s health guidance. This past Wednesday officials announced a new tiered coronavirus response system that lays out when restrictions will be lifted or added. The tiers include, “all clear, “mask precautions,” “caution,” and “extreme caution” and dictate when masks and proof of vaccination are required indoors. As of Wednesday, the city is under the “mask precautions” tier, which means food and drink establishments are no longer required to see proof of vaccination status for patrons to eat and drink. While the city has lifted that requirement for eating and drinking as part of this tier, officials said establishments can still choose to require proof of vaccination for entry to indoor areas. Additionally, masks are still required for indoor public spaces under the “mask precautions” tier.
