LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–California School Boards Association (CSBA), the nonprofit education association representing the elected officials who govern public school districts and county offices of education, and Maclean Health, a Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) healthcare distributor that is the exclusive vendor for school safety and healthcare supplies to CSBA constituents, today announced their endorsement of Delos’ advanced air purification units to advance health and well-being in schools across the state.

“With the end of the school year quickly approaching, school administrators are already preparing for the return of students, faculty and staff this Fall”

As mounting evidence suggests that small, aerosolized particles carrying SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) can remain suspended in the air and can persist in aerosol form for long periods of time indoors, air purification systems are considered by many to be a critical supplementary approach to reducing transmission rates by remediating airborne pollutants and contaminants, including those pollutants that can trigger the onset of asthma. Delos’ advanced air purification units capture ultrafine particles and can reduce particles that carry airborne bacteria and viruses.

“With the end of the school year quickly approaching, school administrators are already preparing for the return of students, faculty and staff this Fall,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “With recent government funding available to help K-12 public schools address the COVID-19 impact, such as through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA), every classroom can have immediate access to cleaner air and can start to effectively address health concerns both now and into the future.”

Over 150,000 Delos advanced air purification units have been deployed in schools across the country, including in Los Angeles County and various other California school districts, as well as in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Miami-Dade, and New York school districts, to help minimize airborne viral load in the indoor school environment. CSBA member school districts will have the option to follow CSBA’s recommendation and can purchase the units at a member price directly through CSBA’s exclusive partnership with Maclean Health.
