Great job, AMBUCS! Happy to host this amazing crew in our facility every Tuesday for their weekly meetings!

Last Monday, AMBUCS Cullen Sheehan, Paul Dick, Dave Aikens and John Lloyd rebuilt a ramp for a woman in Duncansville. The existing ramp had deteriorated to the point where it soon wasn’t going to be safe for the owner to use it. The plywood was rotting, the ramp’s framing underneath needed to be stabilized, and several of the railing pieces needed replacing. Additionally, the club will also be helping to replace the porch roof since there are currently a number of big holes in the roof that will make the porch very hazardous this winter when rain and snow freezes on the floor boards. The first picture shows the old ramp with a brick trying to hold down a seam between the plywood sheets that were separating. The other two photos show the completed ramp and railings and one of Dave, Paul and Cullen.

COVID-19 Testing: Safety Precautions and Site Protocols (updated 11.14.2020)

Due to a recent spike in cases and by order of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Health, AMI Expeditionary Health, LLC is constructing a free Coronavirus testing site at The Blair County Convention Center. Outlined below are the precautionary measures that both AMI and the convention center are taking to ensure the safety of all guests, patients and staff.

The testing site will allow for both drive-thru testing and walk-in testing but it is estimated that approximately 95% of tests will be conducted via drive-thru. Drive-thru testing is preferred.

DRIVE-THRU TESTING
Patients coming to the center for drive-thru testing will be directed to the back of the facility. They will be met at their car by an AMI staff member. Registration and testing will be conducted within the confines of the car and there will be no need to enter the facility.

WALK-IN TESTING
Patients who choose to walk in for testing will be directed to the parking garage located at the back of the facility. They will enter through the lower level doors, complete testing, and exit through the lower level doors. Patients will NOT be permitted to enter through the main doors of the facility and access to the main level from the lower level will be blocked off.

The indoor testing space will be confined to 2,500 square feet in the lower level lobby. Access to the lower level bathroom will be restricted. All patients and AMI staff members will be required to wear masks. After an individual test is complete, AMI staff members will change gloves and disinfect the test area as well as all materials used.

LOGISTICS
AMI is prepared to handle 440 tests per day on a first-come, first-serve basis. The site will accept patients from 7:00am to 6:00pm for eight days over a ten day stretch: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, then Sunday November 22 and the following Monday and Tuesday. Testing is done by nasal swab and the procedure takes 8 to 10 minutes.

If you plan to be tested, you must wear a mask and bring your identification, insurance card (if you have one) and preferably, your own pen for registration. Patients must be at least 3 years of age and do not need to have COVID-19 symptoms. If you are positive for COVID-19, the results will be communicated to you by phone within 48 hours. If you are negative, the results will be communicated via email within 3-4 days. Testing is free and no appointment is needed.

The convention center is located at 1 Convention Center Drive in Altoona.
