With non-essential services closed during the novel coronavirus pandemic, small business owners have had to do a major rethink on their operating strategies.

“What we have been hearing from the hospital community, is that hospital design after this pandemic — for instance in a hospital, quickly change a cafeteria into more hospital rooms,” explains Glenn Bostock.

Bostock is the founder and CEO of Snapcab, a Kingston company now focused on adapting their portable quiet office space modules into isolation and testing rooms for hospitals.

“We’ve got this group of community doctors working with us, to perfect the testing pods,” says Bostock, “and we are also making these modular hospital pods.”
