As we continue to navigate the pandemic, our physical office will be open by appointment only. Generally, our phones will be answered during normal business hours, but e-mail is always the best way to reach us – our virtual office is always open. Some of our attorneys are willing to meet in-person, but each is always available by videoconference or phone appointment. We require you to review and follow our COVID-19 safety checklist – below – for any in-person meeting.
COVID-19 Safety Checklist
1528 Walnut Street – Suite 1100 – Philadelphia, PA 19102
We are sharing this checklist – a combination of CDC, PA Department of Health and City of Philadelphia business safety operating guidance and requirements as of January 2022 – because you will be visiting us soon. We ask that you review this list carefully prior to your visit, and let us know if you have any questions or concerns:
- Regardless of whether you have been vaccinated, you do not have any COVID-19 symptoms (fever over 100.4, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, diarrhea, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and/or new loss of taste or smell)*.
- To your knowledge, you have not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 symptoms*.
- Even if you have been vaccinated, you have not traveled outside of the continental U.S./outside of North America in the past two weeks.
- You agree to let us know right away if you develop any COVID-19 symptoms once in our suite.
- You will not bring anyone else to our suite unless we approve another visitor.
- Regardless of whether you have been vaccinated, you agree to wear a mask, covering both your nose and mouth when entering our suite and throughout your visit in accordance with the City of Philadelphia’s August 2021 mandate. If we approve another visitor, that visitor also agrees to wear a mask under the same conditions.
- If you have not been vaccinated and/or have not cleared the two-week post-vaccination waiting period, you agree to maintain a minimum of six feet from our employees when entering our suite (ring the doorbell, wait for an employee to unlock the door, enter once they step back, use the contactless hand sanitizer provided at the reception desk and take a seat in our reception area) and to maintain that distance throughout your visit.
- Regardless of whether you have been vaccinated, you agree to abide by all public health measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 while traveling to and while in our suite, e.g., masking as required – especially if using public transportation – physical distancing of at least six feet and frequent hand sanitizing/washing.
We encourage you to take all other safety precautions during your visit, such as refraining from touching your face, using hand sanitizer as needed, coughing/sneezing into your sleeve, and washing your hands. Rest assured that we will be taking these same precautions with each other to ensure your safety too.
In the meantime, we look forward to the day when we can forgo masking and resume shaking your hand.
*You agree to reschedule or rearrange your visit to appear remotely if you have COVID-19 symptoms or believe you have been exposed to someone with coronavirus symptoms.
