Posted by Philadelphia Department of Public Health on August 18, 2020

About the Philadelphia Department of Public Health
The mission of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) is to protect and promote the health of all Philadelphians and to provide a safety net for the most vulnerable. PDPH is the City of Philadelphia’s lead public health agency responding to the coronavirus disease pandemic.

About COVID-19
The next phase of epidemic control to suppress COVID-19 requires three actions: containment, social distancing, and the protection of vulnerable populations. Isolation and quarantine (I&Q) are measures to help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. Isolation separates sick people from people who are not sick. Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease, including contacts of a confirmed case, to prevent them from passing the infection to others if they become sick. One of the challenges of those exposed and/or infected with COVID-19 is being able to effectively isolate in their current living situations and making sure individuals comply with isolation regimens. Whether living with family, group settings, high-risk individuals, or alone, there are obstacles within each circumstance that impact one’s ability to isolate.

Purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP)
The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified organizations to help provide the support and/or services needed to ensure successful I&Q for people with or exposed to COVID-19.

The I&Q Program will receive proposals online by August 31, 2020.
