In occupied spaces, viruses may transmit from person to person via infectious airborne aerosols.
- There is a consensus among scientific experts that SARS-CoV-2 is airborne and can be spread through viral aerosols.
- Infectious viral aerosols can remain in the air for long periods of time: studies suggest SARS-CoV-2 can remain in the air for up to 16 hours which is why continuous effective air purification is recommended.
- Indoor spaces such as dining areas, common areas, waiting rooms, offices, bathrooms, and elevators pose a high risk for airborne transmission.
The CDC, FDA and a panel of 239 scientists recommend using germicidal UV-C to combat transmission.
- Effective air cleaning is a critical element of infection management and risk mitigation, and Bluezone products are highly effective at killing airborne viral loads. Air cleaning is often overlooked, but easily addressed using the Bluezone Model 450. The Bluezone Model 450 demonstrated a 99.9995% reduction of MS2 bacteriophage, the official SARS-CoV-2 surrogate. For the complete third party lab test, please read ARE Labs – Efficacy of the Bluezone device against aerosolized MS2 Virus.
Bluezone can be crucial to reducing the transmission of viruses in occupied spaces by continuously killing or inactivating them. For more information on this model, please visit our product page.
