The Pennsylvania COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program (CHIRP) is the new $145 million Statewide grant fund to support certain businesses in the hospitality industry severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the interest of public health and in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, wearing a mask or face covering is required in Philadelphia at all times when inside local businesses, museums and attractions, at restaurants unless while not eating or drinking, and while outside when proper social distancing is not possible.
In response to these requirements, local attractions, museums, artists, and small businesses have begun offering their own custom face coverings, allowing you to mask up in style and with a little Philadelphia flair added in.Discover More
