COVID-19 - How to Map
Facilities for mass vaccination against the COVID-19 disease, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, can be tagged as follows:
- Physical facility according to local circumstanced, e.g. healthcare=centre, or using the top-level tag of the facility temporarily used for vaccination, e.g. when a stadium is used, keep leisure=stadium,
- vaccination=covid19 to specify the illness (Covid-19) against which is vaccinated.
Testing and Treatment
Treatment centers are generally found within established hospitals themselves.
For standalone testing facilities the tag healthcare=sample_collection was approved.
Some mappers appear to be using healthcare:speciality=covid19, in addition to temporary=yes, for Covid-19 related facilities. This should be avoided as it
- does not fit into the healthcare:speciality scheme naming treatment approaches and not illnesses
- is unspecific about the character of the facility.
Lockdowns, Closures and Openings
The infrastructure for Ça Reste Ouvert was shut down on September 30,2020. It is still possible for users to deploy the infrastructure for supporting individual instances.

If a shop or restaurant continues to offer services like drive-through, delivery or take-away, you may use following tagging:

Pop-up Bike Lane: cycle track and temporary infrastructures
There is a movement in the world of pop-up bike lane creations made with temporary elements in order to help people with physical distancing against COVID-19.
How to map
If the cycleway or the infrastructure is planned to last more than a month, you can tag them as usual with bicycle tags like cycleway=* or highway=cycleway. This way, the data will be usable by every software without code modification.
If the cycleway replaces a previous infrastructure (lane, busway, etc.), in order to keep the information of the previous infrastructure, the key needs to be changed with a was:*=* prefix, such as was:cycleway=lane
To precise that the cycleway or the infrastructure is temporary, you can add a notice like:
