PHILADELPHIA –Mayor Kenney today announced that the City has reached agreements with two other hotels for quarantine and isolation space, in addition to the previously-announced use of the Holiday Inn Express. The other sites are the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Center City, and the Marriott Springhill Suites at the Philadelphia International Airport.

The two additional sites will be used for first responders who need quarantine or isolation space. The Holiday Inn Express, which currently has 40 occupants, is for anyone who cannot quarantine or isolate at home, including first responders and individuals who are homeless. The Mayor specifically thanked Fairfield Inn General Manager Jim Lawrence-Evans and the entire Wankawala Organization, and Marriott Springhill Suites owner Charlene Schwartz, and the General Manager, Jen Lamken, for their willingness to provide their facilities for this important need at nominal terms.

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health today announced 311 additional presumptive confirmed cases of COVID-19 novel coronavirus in Philadelphia. That brings the number of confirmed cases to 7,441.

The Department of Public Health again noted clusters of positive cases in congregate settings, including nursing homes, behavioral health facilities, and the Department of Prisons. Three additional inmates have tested positive. The current total of positive cases at correctional facilities is 56.
