Currently, due to the pandemic, schools and other educational institutions have been closed. But, what can you do to ensure 100% safety at your campus when schools reopen shortly? Here are some tips that you can follow to make sure that kids can remain safe amidst this COVID-19 pandemic.
Busting Myths About Third Wave and Kids
The latest reports released by the Lancet COVID-19 Commission India Task Force states that there is no evidence to suggest that children will be affected worst by the anticipated third wave. Moreover, this commission includes prominent pediatric experts from across the country. From this fact, we can understand that kids will be affected but not severely. So, to prevent the infection, you should always keep your school safe and hygienic all the time for kids to come without hesitation and study when schools reopen.
How Can You Equip Your School To Make It Pandemic Proof?
When you plan to reopen your school, you should ensure that your campus is well equipped and protected to keep kids from getting infected by COVID-19. Sanitizing is the only way through which you can maintain thorough safety and protection in your classrooms. You may sanitize floors
with alcohol-based sanitizers but, they are not the best solution when it comes to disinfecting common touch-points like doorknobs, staircase bannisters and stationaries like papers, files and documents.
You can sanitize common touchpoints using a portable UV sanitizer like 'MY’ UV One, a handheld sterilizer wand that kills 99.96% of germs, including COVID-19, within a single flash in under 40 seconds.

Should Mask Be Mandatory?
Wearing an Antiviral Face Mask is important at all times during this pandemic. Regular fabric masks are fragile and are not effective in preventing the COVID-19 virus. Therefore, you should wear and provide face masks that have enhanced protection capabilities to your kids.
Health professionals are recommending double masking or antiviral face masks with triple layers to tackle the infection. Such face masks help to trap droplets of sneeze and cough and prevents them from atomizing further. Moreover, if your school is located at a place that has a low air quality index or has a high level of air pollution, then your school kids are at greater risk of falling susceptible to COVID-19 infection. Researchers have recently found that air pollution has been acting as a catalyst in aggravating COVID-19 cases.
Thus, you should advise your school kids to wear a mask with triple layers and make it mandatory to avoid viral spread among students. Your Institution can help identify the best face mask that offers triple layer of efficiency for the kids and teachers from Bacteria, virus and pollution. India’s first Triple Action Filter Mask such as 'MY’ Mask Series 1, is capable of tackling pollutants and destroys the virus with very high efficiency. Mask Series 1 is one of its kind and comes with triple-action layers inbuilt with carbon and copper filters that kills 99.96% of germs within contact. Certified by DSIR and CPCSEA, this face mask provides cutting edge protection against all odds, letting you breathe the purest of air amidst this pandemic.Considering the current scenario, you should always be ready to face any changes. We should also learn to adapt to those changes that come our way. Since, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change” - Albert Einstein.
