Through a grant provided by the William Penn Foundation, 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).
While the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry has been devastating, the impact of potential COVID-19 exposures is disruptive and could cause the smallest, most vulnerable businesses to close. This program helps alleviate barriers to access for testing and reimburses up to $60 per test.
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.
