PLANNING AHEAD FOR PHILLY and MANAYUN, Manayunk Chambers Guest House


June 1, 2020

Dear Friends,

Happy June and Happy PRIDE!!!!

Looking ahead as our wonderful city begins to take steps in re-opening I want to give you an understanding of what you can expect as we do so in Manayunk.  All of our amazing restaurants and shops are anxiously awaiting our opportunity and honor to serve you, our loyal guests once again, this Summer season 2020.  We look forward to doing it in a safe and methodical way to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

Philadelphia will enter the “Yellow Phase” of Governor Wolf’s reopening plan. If overall risk remains mitigated for 14 days, the city will be able to enter the “Green Phase”.

Below is some helpful information that may be of use to you as Manayunk prepares to reopen. For all state-mandated guidance for reopening, please refer to the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health websites as well as Governor Wolf’s Plan for Pennsylvania.

Yellow Phase (Beginning Friday, 6/5):
In-person retail is permitted in this phase (although curbside pickup and delivery is still encouraged).
Governor Wolf announced this week that restaurants are permitted to add dine-in service in outdoor seating areas, provided they adhere to guidelines from the state. However, Mayor Kenney has since told Philadelphia restaurants not to launch outdoor dining until the city has announced their protocols for outdoor dining. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Gyms, fitness studios, salons & barbershops are still restricted from opening their doors to the public.
Large gatherings of 25 or more people are prohibited.

Green Phase (Start Date TBD):
Bars & restaurants, gyms & fitness studios, salons & barbershops and entertainment venues will be able to operate at 50% capacity.

At Manayunk Chambers Guest House you can “Rest Assured” that we are taking every precaution by going above and beyond our usual immaculate cleaning practices ensuring the health and safety of all of our guests.  We have added hand sanitizing stations in both of our properties and have alcohol wipes readily available in all common areas.

To comply with the newly imposed Pennsylvania state safety requirements all of our guests must wear a face mask while in any public areas of the Guest House.  Food and Beverage service will be suspended in the Bed and breakfast until the state begins to move into the “Green Phase” of health requirements as it pertains to the Governor’s reopening plan.

We are so looking forward to serving you again while you visit my favorite Philadelphia town of Manayunk.

Missing you dearly,
