rZERO - HOW TO PROTECT FANS, STAFF AND PLAYERS IN COVID-19 AND BEYOND

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is relentless, and challenges persist. With a desire to bring fans, staff, and players safely back to the arena, leaders are facing increased pressure to implement effective safety and disinfection protocols, fast.  So, what is the best approach?

On March 4, 2021, IIFX and the biosafety company R-Zero discussed how to use UV-C to reduce the spread of infection. By incorporating the same multi-layered approach as hospitals, you can safely bring fans, staff, and players back to the arena.

As COVID-19 has expanded the need for highly effective disinfection solutions beyond patient rooms and operating rooms, arenas across the country are mapping hospital best practices to their own facilities. The highest standards for disinfection will not only help prevent the spread of COVID-19, but also other pathogens prevalent in luxury suites and lockers rooms, such as norovirus and the seasonal flu.

From this webinar you will learn:

-The efficacy of UV-C light, common myths, and how to evaluate it as an air and surface disinfection tool for your facilities.
-How to incorporate hospital-grade disinfection practices in your cleaning and disinfection protocols
-Why UV-C disinfection will make your fans, players, and staff feel safer when they are inside your venue.
