The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine has received emergency FDA approval and has begun to be administered to front line workers this past week. Could this be the turnaround we have all been hoping for? While it’s certainly promising, we still need to remain vigilant and continue to follow CDC guidelines for the foreseeable future. Electrostatic disinfection will play an important role in maintaining safe facilities during the vaccine rollout and long after.
Patience Is Key
The excitement over the possibility that Covid-19 could be in the rear view mirror is truly palpable. However, this is not an overnight process. First, there is an order to who is eligible for the vaccine. Everyone will have to wait their turn, as high-risk populations take priority. During this time, some or maybe all of your employees may be unprotected against Covid-19. The best way to handle the wait is to continue to practice regular disinfection, social distancing, mask wearing, and handwashing.

Electrostatic Disinfection Still Provides Protection
Facilities are reopening, and will continue to reopen as vaccination becomes more widespread. But, since not everyone will have access to the vaccine right away or agree to take it, businesses will need to continue to keep their facility as clean as possible. In addition, distancing, masking, and other safety precautions will need to remain in effect. Electrostatic disinfection is over 8x more effective than traditional hand wiping methods at completely disinfecting surfaces in offices, schools, medical facilities, and more. Plus, even as Covid-19 cases begin to fall, we still have seasonal flu to deal with! As we barrel full steam ahead into cold and flu season, disinfection of high touch surfaces helps to curb the spread of these illnesses as well. Electrostatic spray provides this kind of protection with a blanket of positively charged mist that clings to surfaces and disinfects.
