“While it’s possible that things will never truly return to ‘normal,’ many of the protocols put into place over the last year – including improving indoor air quality – are here to stay.”
- Brian Packard, Celios CEO
With the vaccine rollout accelerating and restrictions lifting, businesses are preparing for the ‘new normal.’ But during the COVID-19 pandemic, not everyone feels comfortable returning to work or entering a business. Business owners want to ensure employees and customers feel comfortable but find themselves having to rethink what defines a ‘clean’ environment.
As people return to their everyday routines, they want to feel assured that business owners are taking necessary precautions to help mitigate the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission, including providing a clean environment. With the pandemic putting a spotlight on the importance of indoor air quality, experts are advocating for proper ventilation indoors as a necessary measure to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 – including introducing outdoor air inside, equipping HVAC systems with better filters, and adding portable air purification devices - such as the Celios G200 Advanced Air Purifier.
