While a recent McKinsey & Company report shows nearly 20 years of learning were lost during the pandemic, an article written by Business Consultant Christopher McKinney highlights a project conducted by Far UV Technologies and USUVClean that installed Care222 technology in school cafeterias and entranceways across 4 school districts during the pandemic saw a 27% reduction in absenteeism year over year during the pandemic.

"The CEO of the Santee-Lynches Regional Council of Governments, my team and I worked diligently with USUVClean to install Far UV (222nm) Disinfection Lighting Solutions technology across 4 school districts on 331 school buses to proactively protect bus drivers and kids in addition to installing equipment in 72 school cafeterias and entrance ways across the 4 school districts during the pandemic.
