A little more than a year ago, the discussion around mass vaccinations would have caused a few eyebrows to raise. While we can certainly reminisce about simpler times, the fact remains that currently speaking, the world has changed dramatically, and we are all doing our best to catch up and remain up-to-speed.
As COVID19 ravaged countries around the world, there now seems to be hints of hope circulating in the form of filled syringes. As millions across North America prepare to be vaccinated against this silent killer, there is much more that goes into the process outside of getting a needle.
While delays are seemingly inevitable in some areas, the fact that these vaccinations will soon be administered is undeniable. As countries, states, counties and municipalities scramble to acquire the necessary doses, they also are scrambling for available locations to have them administered. In the interest of keeping the right amount of distance between all those being vaccinated, organizers and decision-makers are utilizing large spaces to help get as many doses out as possible, as safely as possible.
The Conversion of Spaces
In terms of how and where the vaccines are being administered, in many cases, these are common areas such as local schools, community centers, health units and recreation centers.
Areas such as gymnasiums, libraries, auditoriums and cafeterias are being transformed to vaccine sites and need to accommodate physical distancing requirements at the same time.
The Question of Protection
With new mandates such as converting these kinds of spaces into vaccine areas complete with heavy foot traffic as well as desks and chairs, many facility managers and school administrators are looking for solutions to protect flooring.
As such, we have been fielding an array of questions and inquiries regarding customized gym floor covers. With our in-house design team, we are able to provide custom solutions fit for any space and have them deployed to customers across North America as quickly as required to suit these new guidelines.
