LORAIN, Ohio (WOIO) – As we inch towards another school year the major concern is how to keep students, teachers and staff safe from the threat of COVID-19.
It’s no secret that the United States has a major concern on its hands, keeping students and staff safe from the coronavirus pandemic.
Horizon Science Academy in Lorain, Ohio, has taken the steps needed to protect its students and staff. Although 800 students will start the year with virtual learning, Horizon Science Academy brought in Anago of Cleveland to clean and disinfect the K – 12 school to ensure a safe environment when their students return.
“The average person touches 300 surfaces within a 30-minute period, and children touch probably even more,” said Wayne Lewis, a representative of Anago of Cleveland.
“There’s a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning is the removal of germs, where disinfecting is actually the killing of the germs, and that’s a big difference. You have to clean before you disinfect,” Lewis said.
