COVID Passports and Air Purifiers as a public health measure

A growing number of European countries have implemented the norm of asking for COVID passports to enter establishments. It’s a document to be presented for access to places such as bars, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, and hospitals to curb the recent rise in COVID-19 cases. This measure is increasingly popular by EU countries as coronavirus cases continue to rise.

A growing number of European countries have implemented the norm of asking for COVID passports to enter establishments. It’s a document to be presented for access to places such as bars, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, and hospitals to curb the recent rise in COVID-19 cases. This measure is increasingly popular by EU countries as coronavirus cases continue to rise.

First introduced in Israel, a paper document that states the person has been fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19. Covid passports are also referred to as health pass, green pass, safe ticket or corona pass. It allows people access to indoor restaurants, bars, cafes and other indoor venues. Each country has a slightly different plan for how they work, they go by different names and the rules are regularly updated. However, they all follow the same principle. Requiring documentation of your healthcare regarding COVID-19 before entering any indoor venue. They are not needed for outdoor spaces and gatherings since outdoor transmission of COVID has proven to be low, provided social distancing.

Many have not welcomed the introduction of COVID passports with open arms. Some people believe they are a violation of freedoms that allow bars and restaurants to “discriminate” against those that are not vaccinated. Nevertheless, these worries haven’t stopped governments from implementing the regulation.

So far these are the countries in the EU that have introduced some form of Covid pass:

Although Spain as a country has not introduced a covid passport, some regions have. People will have to show their COVID passport, proving they are vaccinated, have recovered, or had a recent negative test. More information about Spanish regulations can be found here.

There are other measures that could be considered to provide a cleaner air space. Let’s talk about medical- grade air purifiers and how they should be considered when talking about providing clean indoor air for establishments.

In their reopening efforts, several hospitality venues have selected to implement medical- grade purifiers to enhance cleaning protocols in response to COVID-19. Poor indoor air quality is now taken seriously by many commercial establishments as it can lead to new lockdowns and financial ramifications. In addition to following guidelines for capacity, social distancing and mask requirements, venues are expanding cleaning protocols including medical-grade air purifiers.

Air purifiers with HEPA filtration efficiently capture particles the size of the virus that causes COVID-19. This virus is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter. Which means it is within the particle-size range that HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency: 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and above. This means that Air Purifiers with HEPA filters would efficiently capture viruses that cause COVID-19 and thus reduces airborne COVID particles from the air.

It is so effective that medical facilities have used HEPA filtration to capture airborne pathogens, and, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many school systems are using them to reinforce HVAC filters and natural ventilation. A combination of HEPA filters and UV light is effective in reducing airborne COVID particles from the air of hospitals, and many studies have shown evidence: More information about this study can be found here: researchers
