The rollout of Covid vaccines has been influential in ensuring that the population is safe and vaccinated against the dangers posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Indeed, the pandemic has had a significant effect on how we live our lives, and this has had significant impacts on the way in which we live our lives. Fortunately, there is now light at the end of the tunnel, we are all beginning to slowly emerge from lockdowns and return to some semblance of normality. A critical part of this has been the rapid establishment of suitable Covid vaccination centres and Covid testing centres, allowing the medical community to get control over the virus’ spread successfully and provide protection to as many people as possible.

The Value of Tiled Flooring Solutions for Test Sites and Vaccination Centres
When it comes to finding a suitable flooring solution for Covid test sites and vaccination centres, it is imperative a few factors are considered. Indeed, not just any flooring solution will do, and testing centres had very specific requirements during this process. Suitable flooring types for the creation of rapid testing centres and vaccination hubs needed to meet all the following requirements:
- Waterproof and easy to clean for any spillages and the like, as well as for easy disinfecting between patients to help prevent the transmission of Covid-19
- Rapid installation and removal times. Because the flooring solutions for Covid test sites needs to be a temporary option, it is imperative that they can be installed very quickly without needing to wait long times for installation or allowing adhesive to set. Similarly, as a temporary solution, these flooring solutions also need to be easy to remove once the testing sites and vaccination hubs are no longer needed.
- Customisation options need to be possible, such as for printing arrows to indicate a one-way system and the like. Custom paints or heavy-duty tape needs to stick and adhere easily to the flooring solution to provide a long term and durable option.
- Flooring solutions must be durable enough to withstand heavy, regular footfall, as the vaccination centres and Covid test clinics would be very heavily used.
Fortunately, there is one innovative and affordable flooring solution that has posed the ideal solution to all these requirements: interlocking tiled flooring. By implementing these tiled flooring solutions, it is possible to rapidly create new locations and premises – while protecting the original floor of the facility – that are ideally suited to Covid testing and vaccinations.
