While the threat of the coronavirus is far from over, businesses around the world are looking for ways to responsibly reopen their doors—while keeping their customers and employees as safe as possible.
In order to open the economy, customers and workers must have confidence that they are safe to begin a “new normal”. Establishments like gyms, retail shops, bars and restaurants will need to implement new safety precautions, like those provided by the Centers for Disease Control, local authorities and health officials. New safety measures will generally include strict handwashing, personal protective equipment, social distancing and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting.
But a robust plan for reopening safely needs to include more than that. There are many unknowns about how this virus spreads, but it has been shown to stay airborne for up to three hours. As we consider spending more time in buildings other than our homes, many may be wondering, can air conditioning spread the virus?
To protect against the spread of airborne particles, business owners can go a step further by removing aerosols carrying viruses and bacteria from the air itself—providing better assurances that their team members, shoppers, diners, or patrons are safe when they return.
For example, we are working closely with restaurant groups looking to welcome diners back into their establishments in the coming weeks. In addition to an entirely new dining experience that includes completely re-worked dining rooms and minimal interactions, owners are utilizing Purafil’s filtration solutions to make the air safer to breathe for their staff and patrons.
When surrounded by uncertainties, Purafil provides reliable filtration media that removes 99.99% of aerosols carrying viruses*. Purafil’s air filtration solutions utilize technology that has been proven effective in 3rd party testing. We are now making this powerful indoor air filtration available for businesses of all sizes –and even private homes—with our PuraShield air scrubber cabinets.
Each piece of equipment includes:
1) A Pre-filter that catches large particles and removes them from the air.
