How can we keep kids safe during this pandemic?

The year 2020 has been a challenge for everyone.  New disease lingering in the air, loved ones getting sick, and some even dying.   We all want and need to do our part to put a stop to this pandemic, so we can get back to our “normal” lives.   We can continue doing things to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 by washing our hands, wearing face masks, and social distancing.  But what else can we do?  

The CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are frequently touched.   But what about the air?  Now that it’s winter, and so cold outside, we have less opportunity to stay outdoors in a well ventilated area and are stuck inside with other people breathing in the same air.  

What if your in the same room as another person who is Covid positive yet they are asymptomatic?  Wouldn’t it be great to be in a room with clean air!   An air purifier along with a HEPA filter may be the key. While the activate carbon filters can trap the Volatile Organic Compound pollutants, allergens and viruses in the air, the uvlights and PCO technology will sanitize and cleanse the the air of transmittable disease.

If there were whole room or whole building air purifiers in schools we could help prevent the spread of viruses like Covid-19 between students and then maybe they wouldn’t bring it home to infect Grandma.  Also air purifiers in school could lessen the effect of allergens on the students with asthma and allergies.  If we could sanitize the air in our homes we could prevent spreading those germs between family members, especially since you’re not likely to wear a mask in your own home with your immediate family. 

I believe air purifiers in homes, schools, and places of business is the next needed step to help remove this virus out of our lives and start getting back to normal.
