COVID-19 Response and Infectious Disease Exercises in New York City
Tetra Tech has been contracted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to manage multiple infectious disease exercises including:
- U.S. Health and Human Services Region II Transport Plan for Confirmed Ebola Patients Functional Exercise (2018)
- Special Pathogens Functional (2019) and Full-Scale Exercises (2019-20)
- Medical Countermeasures (MCM) Distribution (Full Scale 2020) and Dispensing (Full Scale – 2021)
Additionally, Tetra Tech has maintained a multiyear Public Health Emergency Evaluation standby contract for the evaluation of real-world emergencies. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the MCM Distribution exercise was postponed, and real-world operations were implemented to deliver more than a million face masks to 169 healthcare facilities and key stakeholders. Tetra Tech will continue to support this project through a contract scope change to evaluate the real-world response.
