Indoor venues where food or drinks are served will impose vaccination requirements due to a rise in Covid-19 cases.

US.- The city of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, has announced it will require proof of Covid-19 vaccination for admission to casinos and other indoor venues, such as restaurants, theatres, and entertainment venues where food or drinks are served.

Currently, Live! Casino Philadelphia and Rivers Casino Philadelphia require visitors to use facemasks. As of January, all indoor venues in Philadelphia that sell food or drink to be consumed onsite may only admit people who can prove they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

From January 3 to January 17, venues can choose to accept proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 24 hours of entry instead of proof of vaccination. After January 17, negative Covid-19 tests will no longer be accepted and proof of vaccination will be required. The measure also applies to staff.

Indoor restaurants and bars, cafes in museums, catering halls, and food courts, entertainment venues, conventions and casinos, cinemas and bowling alleys where food is served must require proof of vaccination.

In August, Philadelphia casinos and other indoor public places reimposed a requirement to wear face masks indoors. Casinos were allowed to open in June, two weeks after state-wide Covid-19 restrictions were lifted in Pennsylvania.
