Different Uses For Shipping Containers during Coronavirus COVID 19 Pandemic  


Mobile Testing Center 

You can have a container delivered to any location to set up a quick mobile testing center. Containers can also be used as a walk-up testing center with office operations inside to keep patients separated and honor their privacy. 

Temporary Medical Care 

You can set up a triage unit in the container to help assist the hospital with screening and admitting patients. This also keeps these patients separate from others in the emergency room. 

Supply Distribution 

First Responders and Medical Professionals are in desperate need for supplies. These containers are used to house supplies as they are distributed in a drive-up manner. This protects those who are distributing the product.  In addition, it protects those receiving the items.
