Health Dept Parts w/ Philly Fighting COVID; Victory Brewing Fire in Kennett; Winter Weather Advisory
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

The City of Philadelphia announced on Monday, 1/25, that it will no longer be working with the organization Philly Fighting COVID. The group had been providing coronavirus COVID-19 testing for months and most recently pre-registrations and vaccinations. The Department of Public Health decided to end the partnership after PFC changed from a non-profit to a for-profit. "We have recently been made aware of a change in PFC's corporate status that took place without our knowledge, from nonprofit to for-profit. As part of this change, PFC updated its data privacy policy in a way that could allow the organization to sell data collected through PFC's pre-registration site," said a spokesman for the health department. "The City has not been notified of any of these data having been sold. But for PFC to have made these changes without discussion with the City is extremely troubling. As a result of these concerns, along with PFC's unexpected stoppage of testing operations, the Health Department has decided to stop providing vaccine to PFC."

Many residents have already gotten their first dose of a vaccine (either Pfizer or Moderna) through Philly Fighting COVID at the Convention Center and may already have been scheduled to receive a second dose. The health department is working to contact all of those people and will reschedule those second doses with a new clinic.

"Tonight, around 6:30PM there was an explosion and fire in the 600 block of W Cyprus St in the building where the Victory Brewing Company - Kennett Square taproom is located. Our taproom was closed for business today, so no customers or team members were in the building at the time of the incident.

We are not aware of any injuries that were uncovered during the initial investigation. We will continue to work with authorities and with the Red Cross to learn more about what occurred this evening and how we can help our neighbors in the building who have been displaced.
