The Vancouver International Airport (YVR), as part of their back to travel program, were evaluating several different approaches toward testing, evaluation, and surveillance of the travelling public. As the local and international air travel industry was still in the process of creating a homogeneous approach to safe travel, YVR began the process of creating and implementing its own plan.
YVR partnered with the University of British Columbia and WestJet to create a voluntary testing and surveillance plan that could be established and replicated by other airports or travel authorities. The plan would require the travelling public to volunteer to be tested and assessed as part of their travel plans. For this plan to work they would require a separate and safe space to process these volunteers.
YVR looked for a possible solution with Citizen Care Pod™ and investigated the possibility for customization and modifications to meet their requirements.
The SSTP unit was modified to both administer tests and perform evaluations from the exterior of the pod, but also allow volunteers to enter the pod during phase one trial of the process.
In phase two trials, they would be administering tests and evaluations from the exterior only. The SSTP pod could accomplish both.
COVID-19 challenged the Vancouver International Airport’s ability to process the travelling public and bring flight operations back to normal. With their study plan in place, the airport required a safe and modifiable space to conduct its volunteered study and map their COVID-19 response.
