Information And Resources Regarding Novel Corona Virus/ COVID-19 Pandemic
These are extraordinary times for our state and nation. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, TCF Center has been designated by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, State of Michigan and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a temporary alternate care facility in Detroit.
Mobilization has already begun and construction will be performed by the TCF Center workforce and union labor. The temporary site is planned for COVID-19 patients, relieving the burden on local hospitals treating patients with COVID-19. With guidance from FEMA and other officials, the site will be designed in the most efficient way possible in order to allow the convention center to resume normal operations in the weeks ahead when this crisis eases.
In addition, we have not lost sight of our clients. In collaboration with the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, we are working closely with our customers to reschedule events at a time most beneficial to them.
As we navigate this unprecedented time together, TCF Center is fully prepared to do its part in supporting our residents and community. We stand in awe of the tireless and dedicated healthcare workers and first responders who are true heroes of our time.
