Tent Rental for Drive Thru COVID-19 Testing

Lafayette Tents Provides Turn-Key Drive-Thru Testing Tents

Lafayette Tents & Events has been renting high-quality tents to its customers since 1913. As one of the nation’s oldest and most trusted tent rental companies, we pride ourselves on delivering quality products for all types of events, including musical festivals, temporary warehouses, corporate events, trade shows and fairs.

Recently, though, our tents have proven to be useful for a cause far more urgent – for hospital and healthcare facilities to screen and test patients for the coronavirus (COVID-19). Medical facilities are stretched thin because of the recent outbreak and are looking to expand their space to accommodate an overflow of patients. Our tents have been utilized in healthcare parking lots as drive thru sites for COVID-19 testing and screening.

If your hospital or healthcare facility is in need of an extra testing site or space due to an influx of patients, contact Lafayette Tents & Events today. Our tents are an ideal solution to test for the coronavirus without putting staff and patients inside the hospital at risk of being infected.

Dependable Tent Deployment to Your Location

Because of our availability and quick response times, we’ve become a trusted provider of tents for the healthcare industry during this pandemic. During times of uncertainty, you need a company you can trust to deliver a seamless service.

We take care of everything so you can take care of what’s important – testing and treating patients who are in need. We have a simple three-step process for delivering you the best health tent or temporary structure for medical testing sites.

  • Chose a type of tent: Depending on your needs, we’ll help you determine the right type of clear span structure.
  • Develop a site plan: Next, we’ll help you develop a site plan. This includes the location of the structure, width, length, and floor plan.
  • Mobilization & installation: Finally, we manage every step of the process – including delivery, installation, take down and removal. We can keep staff on-site or nearby after installation to make sure everything runs smoothly.

No matter where you’re located, Lafayette Tents & Events will deliver. We’ve deploy our tents coast-to-coast throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and more.

Available Drive Thru Tent Configurations for COVID-19 Testing

We offer one- and two-lane drive thru tent solutions, as well as drive-up screening tents. When you speak with one of our health tent experts, we’ll help you pick the best configuration based on the needs of your hospital, medical facility or government agency.

One-Lane Drive Thru Coronavirus Screening Facility

A one-lane drive thru screening facility is ideal for a small health clinic or pharmacy that is looking to screen people for the virus.  As vehicles pull through the drive thru, a medical professional dressed in protective gear can ask basic questions about travel history and symptoms to see if they need tested.

Two-Lane Drive Thru Testing Facility

A two-lane drive thru is ideal for hospitals and larger healthcare facilities looking to test people for the virus without needing to admit them inside the hospital, where they can put hospital staff and patientts at risk. In these facilities, a medical professional can swab each person in line in the drive thru, or provide the swab to the patient, who can perform the test on themselves.

Once the test has been administered, the patients waits in the parking lot for test  results, which typically take about 15 minutes.

Drive-Up Screening Tents

We also have several tents that can be deployed as screening or testing sites for the coronavirus. In many of these cases, medical personnel can check a person in while they’re in their care before leading them inside the tent for necessary screening or testing. We can deploy tents of all sizes to handle hundreds of people, as well as medical supplies and equipment.

Because hospitals and medical facilities are using our tents for weeks and months on end, they’ll need to be cleaned frequently to prevent the spread of germs. Our tents can be cleaned with cleaners approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Premium Materials

Lafayette Tents & Events’ tents are made from materials that will stand the test of time. Our tents are produced with materials that block UV light to keep staff and customers safe.

Our tents come with an anodized aluminium frame with a 25 ounce vinyl-coated Serge Ferrari 702 fabric (or equivalent). Aluminum is light and offers both rigidity and strength. Because our tents are produced with materials that can handle all environments, they can be safely shipped across the country and overseas.

I want to tell you how very pleased I was with both set-up and take-down of the tents. The installers were freindly, helpful and all around great guys. It was raining and muddy during the take-down, yet these guys were great! Thank you for all of the help.
