In the days of sailing ships they were permanent locations with a number 
of buildings.

some time ago the few that were 'quarantined' are usually taken to an 
isolation ward in a hospital.

However with Covid and the large numbers I can see this facility 
operating for a year at least to accommodate returning local citizens, 
some 40,000 want to return but limited to a small number so as not to 
overflow the facilities.

Once overseas people are allowed back in then this facility may be used 
by them for quarantine too, as the requirement may well continue for 
some time even with the vaccinated.
