Reduce Viruses in Music ClassroomsNew North
Throughout the pandemic, scientists have emphasized the importance of good air circulation indoors as a way of slowing the spread of COVID-19. As kids head back to school it has been noted that this is especially true in music rooms where kids are singing and playing instruments in confined areas.
A research study conducted by Professor Suo Yang of the University of Minnesota determined that in addition to ventilation, air purifiers play a critical role in diminishing the spread of COVID-19 particles in music rooms.
Professor Yang concludes in his study that strategically placing an air purifier in front of a student singing or playing an instrument will efficiently decontaminate the room’s air. He also suggests that with the right air purifier, “it takes about 25 minutes. Then, you can have multiple sessions in one day and when the next session starts, it’s already pretty safe.” Professor Yang’s solution has paved the way for music lessons to occur safely in schools.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Downey, California is already implementing this solution in their 4th-grade music class with the help of AirBox air purifiers. By placing an AirBox near students while playing their instruments, they are successfully removing 99.99% of all airborne pathogens in just minutes.
AirBox air purifiers are not only superbly effective but also easy to use. Operation is as simple as plugging in the unit and turning one knob to start filtering. Changing filters is also hassle-free and with our Clean Air for Life program we take out the guesswork by sending you new filters when it’s time for a change! AirBox technology allows you to eradicate respiratory aerosols in your schools and music rooms and create a safer environment for your students to rock out!
