Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council required a Covid-19 self test bus configured with several cubicles to allow their front line workers to undertake a covid-19 self test.
As none of our vehicles were configured with individual cubicles we reviewed the fleet to see which of the buses available would be suitable to convert and be as covid safe as we could make it.
Ultimately it came down to RSP09, were we would remove the forward section worktops and seating, box off whatever equipment we couldn’t remove or relocate and install cubicles in the remaining space.
After all removable equipment was removed and all other equipment was covered we assessed that 4 front to rear self test cubicles could be installed, each with its own shelf and mirror.
In addition we sourced and installed clips for removable steps for the rear emergency exit door.
With everything in place we believe it’s as covid safe as we could make it, with the flow of visitors entering through the self test bus front door, after which the visitor enters a cubicle, undertakes the self test, then exits the vehicle via the rear emergency exit door and new steps.
In addition the bus has 2 hand sanitizer dispensers installed, none of the opening windows have been covered and each of the cubicles is easily cleanable.
