AIA Announces International Distribution of Its Alternate Care Site Checklist for COVID-19  

The AIA's alternate care site checklist, produced by a special COVID-19 task force, is being distributed internationally by the U.S. State Department, which translated the tool into French, Spanish, and Portuguese. The checklist, just released in its second version (V2), highlights important criteria for evaluation of buildings considered for use as temporary healthcare operations during a pandemic. Version 2 of the translated document, which will be made available to embassies around the world, reflects recommendations from groups such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
