Onondaga County partners with HealthWay to deploy air purifies throughout COVID-19 testing sites to keep doctors, nurses, and the public safe during testing
Pulaski, NY – November 14th, 2020 – Onondaga County has announced that they have partnered with HealthWay to deploy air purification systems throughout their testing sites to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Onondaga County is in Upstate New York and currently governs and serves a community of 470,000 people. The county is responsible for operating many municipalities and facilities across the Upstate region including police, fire, water, parks, and various health care services.
The decision to deploy air purification units came from Onondaga Counties' challenge to continue safe operations of its numerous facilities across the county’s ecosystem. One of these locations was a newly appointed COIVD-19 testing site, Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center. By implementing this solution, Onondaga County augmented their HVAC filter upgrades with portable air purifiers to ensure that people both administrating tests and receiving tests were as safe as possible.
HealthWay’s DFS technology is proven to capture particles up to 0.007 μm, which is smaller in size than all known ultrafine virus particles, including COVID-19 size particles. DFS removes up to 99.99% of airborne mold, bacteria, and viruses from the air. DFS Technology also removes pollutants like pollen, dust, and pet dander from the air that often cause allergies in children and adults. Each unit is individually tested with a class one laser particle counter and is certified to exceed traditional HEPA filtration proving the highest level of ultrafine particle and virus removal.
