This 3-page PDF document provides one example of a map of the traffic flow within a Point of Dispensing (POD). To avoid congestion, the structure of the POD must lend itself to easy walking through to the different stations.

Please note that the map is specific to the planned facility and health departments in smaller jurisdictions may be able to create less complex maps. Additionally, schools may no longer allow use of floor plans as detailed as these shown.

Too specific to the facility itself to be of much general use for others.

Maps very detailed.  Would be great if a wider variety of maps/examples were available.
