“As the science continues to evolve, UV could emerge as an attractive safeguard against airborne transmission — one with a track record against pathogens — that can be deployed to reduce the risk of infectious aerosols accumulating in indoor settings such as schools and businesses.”

“But so far using this technology to provide continuous air disinfection has remained outside of most mainstream, policy-setting conversations about the coronavirus. Experts attribute this to a combination of factors: misconceptions about UV’s safety, a lack of public awareness and technical know-how, concerns about the costs of installing the technology, and a general reluctance to consider the role of aerosols in the spread of the coronavirus.”

Bluezone products use germicidal UV irradiation in a self-contained reaction chamber to combat airborne virus. People have no exposure to the germicidal UV light because the light is kept inside the Bluezone box: only the air which is pulled in with a fan have contact with the UV light. The technology has been fielded since 2010 when it was developed and implemented for the U.S. Military.

Bluezone air cleaners are low cost plug and play solutions. They are critical elements of a comprehensive virus mitigation plan in any indoor occupied space.
