DeKalb County to install UV technology to fight COVID-19 in classrooms
By Kristal Dixon of The AJC
Ultraviolet technology worth $100,000 will be installed at dozens of DeKalb County schools to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
The district received a donation of 100 Healthe AIR troffers to install in ceilings above high-traffic areas at schools, said Chief Operations Officer D. Benjamin Estill. Healthe, the company behind the technology, said the troffers use a quiet fan to draw air into the device where UV lighting eliminates harmful microbes, which improves indoor air quality. The donation is valued at $100,000, DeKalb schools said in a news release Tuesday.
Estill said the district will prioritize schools that do not have upgraded filtration systems for the installation project.
