Compendium of Norms for Designing Quarantine Facility
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mahila Housing Trust (MHT) strongly felt a need to develop a quarantine facility in Ahmedabad district. At the time, since the pandemic situation was relatively new, there were limited resource materials available related to design and construction aspects of Covid-19 quarantine facilities. Thus, a set of norms were developed by compiling various guidelines and other documents. The personal experiences of medical staff as well as patients facing Covid-19 were incorporated to understand the requirements. It was designed as a useful resource not just for designers and construction project implementers but also for administrators who were involved in setting up quarantine facilities for semi-urban or rural areas.
