With high volumes of individuals coming together from different households, schools are all too often a breeding ground for COVID-19 and other viruses. We need to keep students, teachers, administrators and staff safe in schools during the pandemic.
New Funding Opportunities
In order to help alleviate some of the financial burden caused by COVID-19, schools have been allocated additional funding. Congressional COVID funding for schools has come in the form of 3 different relief plans: the CARES Act, the Covid Relief Package, and the American Rescue Plan. Additionally, the CRSSA Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund has been signed, which authorizes additional stimulus aid.
All together, schools can expect billions of dollars that can be used towards COVID-safe operation and pandemic response. They are now faced with re-budgeting this funding and figuring out how to invest in smart solutions.
Invest In A Direct Solution
One avenue that this funding can support is direct efforts to keep schools clean and prevent the spread of these germs. PowerUp’s device sanitizing solutions are an immediate, cost-effective investment that will keep students safer and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
The Importance of Device Sanitizing
Every day, people are bringing in their own devices, like cell phones, laptops, and tablets into the school. Many schools also use shared devices like laptops for students; these especially need to be cleaned between uses to prevent the spread of bacteria. A device sanitizing solution helps stop the spread of the germs that inevitably build up on these devices throughout the day.
The PowerUp UVC Charging Cart can be placed in classrooms, lunch rooms, teacher’s lounges, or any other convenient location. Once the device is plugged in, it only takes 5 minutes for the cart to complete the UVC disinfection process. The device will charge during this time as well. That way, it’s easy for students to clean and charge their devices between classes, or for employees to do so during their lunch break.
These carts are a great way to respond to COVID-19 concerns in the short-term, but also to keep everyone healthy in the long term. Through the power of 254nm UV light, our UVC carts can kill any kind of bacteria or virus—including MRSA, Staph, E Coli, influenza and other pathogens—not just COVID. Our UVC charging carts are a wise investment that will make a difference for countless school years to come.
