Shelter in Place

Shelter in <span>Place</span>

The current novel coronavirus pandemic has forced many businesses to temporarily close with the “shelter in place” order that was put into place in the Bay Area effective March 17, 2020. However, many essential businesses are still operating and may require banners, signs, floor graphics and more to help inform customers during this time. We can help.


Essential businesses include healthcare facilities, restaurants for curbside pick up and delivery, markets and pharmacies and many others (more information for San Mateo County available here in this FAQ). This has driven a demand for safe social distancing markers, banners, delivery vehicle magnets, window signs, posters and more.


Proper signage in healthcare facilities is essential to protect the well-being of employees, patients and visitors. Your signage needs are a top priority for SpeedPro SF Peninsula as you are essential and we are here to serve you.

Things are moving quickly and well-placed signage helps improve the overall flow of traffic during a time that can be super-chaotic at your healthcare facility. This includes clear and effective signage regarding parking, lines, registration or visiting restrictions. You’ll want to have the most personalized and thoughtfully designed signs to maximize clarity and visibility.

Some essential signage options include:

  • Posters explaining symptoms, preventative methods, and extended respiratory precautions
  • Signage for parking, floor markers for safe 6-foot social distancing while waiting in line, sanitizing stations, etc
  • Temporary signage
  • ADA signage and multilingual signage to apply to a broader audience
  • Branded pop-up canopy tents that can be used for outdoor treatment stations or drive through testing station signs


Is your business still open but you want to prevent people from coming in the door to maintain social distancing? Curbside pick up is an approach many businesses are using but many people don’t know if it’s available or where to go where they arrive. Take the opportunity to develop curbside pickup signs that inform customers where to go and what they need to do.

coronavirus curbside pick up signage


Has your business had to take to the road? Many restaurants are offering their own special delivery service in addition to the online options. If you don’t want to permanently alter the exterior of your vehicle, take advantage of delivery magnets and decals. Custom printed, heavy-duty magnets stick to your door during the day while delivering. Then, when you want to separate yourself from work or when shelter-in-place directives are lifted, they’re easily removed.


People may assume that you’re shut down temporarily or unaware that you may be running a partial operation under the guidelines. Use large format banners to let them know if you’re open and any restrictions or limitations.


Although we must maintain social distance, people are still taking advantage of the ability to go for walks and ride bikes. Consider window graphics or mounting posters to the exterior of your business to let people know that you’re open and encourage them to support local businesses like yours.


As with curbside pick up, other modes of interaction have also changed. Use directional signage as well as social distancing markers to let people know where to go. These can be perfect for:

  • If you’re limiting flow to only one entrance or exit
  • New drop off or pick up windows
  • Relocation of certain products to accommodate safe social distancing
  • Notifications if you’re only allowing a certain number of a particular product to be purchased


If you are authorized as an essential critical infrastructure business, SpeedPro SF Peninsula is authorized to support you. If you are not an authorized essential business, we are still available to support you with our work-from-home team to brainstorm future projects or work on budgets and specs. From curbside pick up signs to safe social distancing markers, we are here to help with your large format printing needs. Contact us online or email to improve your visibility and on-site communication during this unprecedented situation.
