Are Temporary Evacuation Points treated differently during the pandemic?

TEPs were developed during COVID-19 to provide sheltering in non-congregate settings, like hotels, dormitories or campgrounds. They have become a great place to gather during evacuations to provide information and a safe place to wait for shelter options to be identified. Health screenings for COVID-19 may be required for evacuees before entering a shelter, but not when arriving at a TEP. All are welcome! Bilingual staff will be available at the TEP for those who don’t speak English.
