In these unprecedented times, businesses are working to adapt to meet CDC and local guidelines for operation during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Every business, from restaurants and retail stores to public office buildings and schools, are having to modify their processes in order to comply with local regulations and CDC guidelines. 

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), social distancing, also referred to as “physical distancing,” means maintaining a space between yourself and people outside of your business. The recommendation is to follow these guidelines:

  • Stay at least 6 feet or 2 meters from other people
  • Do not gather in groups
  • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings

One simple way to modify a building to make it safer for operation during the COVID-19 pandemic is by installing a pass thru or “drive thru” sliding window system. These innovative additions allow for easy transacting from a safe distance and can blend seamlessly with any building’s exterior. A variety of businesses and facilities could benefit from the safety and convenience a drive thru window provides, including: 

  • Retail stores
  • Restaurants 
  • Government buildings 
  • Schools 

Vortex recently helped a school adapt to the ever-changing times by transforming the front of this high school by installing a pass thru window. This new window will help the faculty and staff interact safely with students throughout the year.
