Learn about the Mobile Discovery Center in this video:
The Mobile Discovery Center will be between Shopton Road, Ooutlets Blvd, Designer Drive and New Fashion Way, and diagonally across from the Eddie Bauer Outlet and Under Armor Factory House.
Visitors are required to wear face coverings, and social distancing will be in effect. Hand sanitation devices will be available.
In addition, the trailers are equipped with the same filters that hospitals use, and the air conditioning ductwork is equipped with a UV light system to kill airborne pathogens. Finally, the return air vents have been resigned to draw air out of the trailers near the floor, creating a flow of air away from people’s faces. Read more about the safety protocols.
