Prevention Of Illness Spread In Childcare Facilities
How many days of work are lost to the cold, influenza, or other common illnesses due to the spread of germs within childcare facilities? The lost work of the parent, the lost revenue of the child stay, the lost productivity of the parents company are many times the trickle down effects of runny noses. Then what is spread at the daycare is shared within families to compound the losses. These facilities are required to follow very strict rules in regards to hours, food service, number of children to supervisory staff and countless other regulations. There isn't any requirement for the control of airborne spreading of germs. The concentration of people into a small area without specific ventilation or filtration of the air invites the rapid spread of illnesses. This is the reason why so many of these facilities require that children with common symptoms stay away until they are better.
While we will never be able to protect everyone from airborne spread of germs, it is possible to significantly reduce the microbiological components that infect the group. Air cleaning devices that are stand alone appliances can circulate air many times per hour and reduce the infectious particles that are being expelled by those who may have illnesses that are not showing signs yet. In addition when someone is ill it reduces the concentration exposure to all those in the facility.
