COVID-19: SOCIAL DISTANCING AND EXPANDED FOOTPRINT SOLUTIONS
SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENT
Millions of members of the U.S. Armed Forces have worked remotely in response to shelter in place orders and travel bans. The ability to telework has been greatly expanded, but some tasks and military training cannot be done remotely.
Because a vaccine for COVID-19 is likely more than a year away, organizations are looking into adapting workspaces to adhere to CDC guidelines prior to ramping up in-person work. For an unknown period of time, servicemembers will need to increase the space between one another while completing the normal course of duties and active training.
Most units don’t have the operating space required to mitigate risk of infection for mission-essential staff, especially during military training events when social distancing guidelines drastically increase lodging requirements. Requiring six feet of space between individuals takes a space that once held 44 people and reduces it to 12. Has your unit taken into account social distancing guidelines for billeting during training events in accordance with TG 314*?
ADS has fielded a variety of expanded footprint requests, so we’ve compiled the following example shelter solutions for military training. If you don't see what you're looking for, just ask. We work with hundreds of suppliers across industries and leverage those relationships to track down what you need, when you need it.
- Isolation units for the sick
- Containerized billeting for quarantine
- Modular units for quarantine billeting
- Modular units for footprint expansion
- Soft-wall solutions for footprint expansion
Social distancing during military training and normal duties requires unique solutions, ensuring health and safety are a top priority. These solutions must be developed, acquired and delivered quickly. The DOD needs facilities and cannot wait years for MILCON money to come through. Tents and relocatable rigid shelters are accessed easily via the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Tailored Logistics Support (TLS) Program in a matter of days or weeks instead of months or years.
ADS is a participating vendor in the Special Operational Equipment (SOE) DLA TLS Program. This dynamic contract offers an easy to use, streamlined acquisition process that ensures on-time deliveries and dedicated customer support.
