The following is an email communication sent by Sparta Group to their shareholders. Given our previous posts about Sparta, we thought there may be interest in reading this.
Concordia University is adopting continuous pathogen protection technology through Sparta Group. This is happening as universities across the country continue to find ways to curb potential outbreaks of COVID-19 cases among students and feel pressure to constantly review their health protocols.
Offering up the CASPR (Continuous Air and Surface Pathogen Reduction) system to learning institutions, is possible due to Sparta’s Health Group’s alliance with CASPR Group Technologies in the United States.
Concordia continues to monitor COVID-19 response measures and follow the advice of public health agencies; however, having CASPR in high traffic areas in the university provides an added layer of protection. The technology is available in the form of a plug-in tabletop unit, a ceiling tile unit, or units mounted directly into the HVAC duct system.
New outlets across the country have been reporting on the number of COVID-19 cases in university settings and just this past weekend, massive student gatherings captured on video created even more concern for health and safety. Prior tests of CASPR technology indicate that the portable units are 99.96 percent effective in reducing pathogens. The units are also unobtrusive, quiet, and barely noticeable when in use. Plus, CASPR units require no manpower and very little maintenance.
Until next time, stay safe.
John O’Bireck, President & CTO
