GLEN BURNIE, MD — As the pandemic has progressed, one business owner has seen her clientele shift. The tents she had been used to pitching for parties are now sent out to coronavirus testing sites across the state.
"It's completely changed our business," Lauri Dixon, general manager of Party Plus Tents + Events, told Patch. "We offer everything from tents to teacups — for graduations, weddings, you name it. Once the pandemic hit, we kind of stopped dead in our tracks."
For the past couple of months, Party Plus Tents + Events has been setting up coronavirus testing tents — both walk-up and drive-thru — at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Anne Arundel Medical Center, Howard County General Hospital and out of state.
