FAQ’s related to Covid-19

What measures have you taken to disinfect the space to protect from Covid-19?2021-12-01T08:50:08-05:00

Ultraviolet lights have been installed in the air handling system at St. Agnes to help disinfect the air from Covid-19 and other airborne disease.

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method used to kill or inactivate microorganisms. UVGI is used in a variety of applications, such as food, air, and water purification. UVGI devices can produce strong enough UV-C light in circulating air systems to make them inhospitable environments to microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, molds, and other pathogens. UVGI can be coupled with a filtration system to sanitize air. In many systems, redundancy in exposing microorganisms to UV is achieved by circulating the air repeatedly. This ensures multiple passes so that the UV is effective against the highest number of microorganisms and will irradiate resistant microorganisms more than once to break them down. Numerous professional and scientific publications have indicated that the overall effectiveness of UVGI actually increases when used in conjunction with fans and HVAC ventilation, which facilitate whole-room circulation that exposes more air to the UV source.
