COVID-19 Service Updates


The 2021 Philly Spring Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 10th. Please take note of the new COVID-19 guidelines for keeping you and your neighbors safe. 



  • Each project site must be limited to 20 volunteers max. 
  • For small area project sites, the number of volunteers should be limited to even below 20 (where possible), in order to safely ensure social distancing practices while performing all cleanup activities.
  • Each project site should have a designated COVID Prevention Coordinator with responsibility for monitoring and enforcing COVID-19 prevention protocols. This can be the project or site coordinator, as long as they are aware that this is a vital part of their role.
  • Participants should maintain proper 6-feet of social distancing from others at all times.
  • Participants should wear protective gloves and a face mask which adequately covers the nose and mouth areas of their face.
  • Participants who refuse to wear the proper PPE (as indicated above) should be immediately asked to leave the project site.
