As the COVID-19 pandemic grabs hold of cities and communities around the US, healthcare facilities and personnel are being overwhelmed. To increase healthcare capacities to care for COVID-19 patients, many universities and colleges have stepped up to offer their facilities. This response from our universities and colleges is inspirational.
However, as universities and colleges partner with healthcare providers and local governments, there are many challenges in safely converting the facilities from student housing into medical care facilities for COVID-19 patients and/or housing for first responders. These efforts pose unique risks to front-line healthcare workers, and the greater communities at the campus. These risks arise from a shortage of expertise and the use of facilities that were not originally engineered for this purpose.
Triumvirate Environmental has the expertise to support the safe transition from college dormitory to COVID-19 care facility or healthcare staff housing. Triumvirate has partnered with clients to offer our expertise in project management, infection control, working in potentially infectious environments, PPE protocols, disinfection, potentially infectious waste management and disposal, and emergency response to help keep everyone involved safe. We can provide the following support to safely convert, operate, and transition your campus facilities into COVID-19 healthcare facilities and back.
