Items of consideration:

a.     Consider transport/storage of materials and equipment.

b.     Create a traffic loop within the location that allows drivers to enter and exit without crossing traffic or making U-turns.

c.     Multiple stations can be set up to allow more cars in at one time.

d.     Avoid large queue of cars in the street – consider a larger parking lot if you expect many cars at once or consider creating appointment times.

e.     Appointment times – leave enough space between appointments to avoid long waiting times or long lines; create appointments over course of multiple days.

f.      Set up canopies to identify each distribution station and provide coverage

g.     All drivers and students should stay within their vehicles when driving up; for contingency walk-ups a separate station should be created that allows for physical distancing.

h.     Dates should not conflict with any other events on campus or disrupt regular University operations. 

i.      For groups who must distribute on the same day, the locations must take place in different areas of campus.

j.      Coordinate with Parking Services and Public Safety to finalize location for distribution and create traffic plan (based on items of consideration).
