A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When that chain is part of perimeter fencing, the most vulnerable point may not be where you think. Gates act as more than security equipment, they represent structural safety meant to stop even the largest of threats.

Even so, that image can be shattered in short order when a determined assailant decides to take action against private or secured property.

Agencies have also set up ad-hoc testing facilities to help determine who is affected, helping to establish quarantine procedures and track how far the illness has spread. In order to control the large amounts of pedestrians and vehicles, many areas are focusing on temporary solutions to traffic control and safety concerns.
