Cutting COVID-19, not corners
Why long lasting total surface protection is necessary to prevent a second wave and save lives
As schools and universities prepare to re-open, we take a look at the best technology based long lasting surface protection solutions proven to be effective against COVID-19. We look at how these have already been effectively deployed in NHS Hospitals, find out what lessons have been learned from the Health sector and ask if the Education sector now needs to go beyond the current Government mandated guidelines to save lives.
Institutions need thorough, certified protection against COVID-19 and reputation damage that could occur in the event of an outbreak. Teachers need to feel safe and confident to return to the classroom, existing students to remain in courses and for attracting and recruiting new students, especially those from overseas . Could this solution be the key to lifting restricted numbers on campus. Should the government now mandate this for the sector and what will Teachers and Student Unions do in response.
Our experts explored why the education sector needs to go further to ensure safe environments:
