Welcome back to PHL!
The City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have announced new COVID-19 guidance. Here’s what you need to know about how this will impact PHL:
PHL now has on-site COVID-19 testing. The testing facility is located in the pre-security area of PHL Terminal E (to the left of the Terminal E security checkpoint). The program is designed for asymptomatic passengers flying out of PHL, and offers both rapid antigen and PCR test options.
PHL will remain open for those who can travel. The Pennsylvania Department of Health has issued an order requiring a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth. Alternately, passengers can quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. PHL supports the Commonwealth's efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, but airport staff will not screen passengers for test results or request quarantine attestation upon arrival.
Airport businesses remain open. Philadelphia has issued new guidance on dining and retail, so airport restaurants will offer takeout and to-go, while retail shops will limit capacity. Check phl.org/open and visit OrderatPHL.com for food delivery
