Safety Remains a Top Priority
We have taken a multifaceted approach in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. Prevention measures include routine electrostatic cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma), HEPA air scrubbers, and MERV 13 air filter installation. Cold plasma is known to kill multiple bacteria, viruses and mold spores and based on recent and ongoing studies; it has demonstrated significant reduction of COVID-19 virus when installed.

Early in the pandemic, we developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to ensure best opportunity for disease prevention. Our collaborations include partnering with university and community-based epidemiology clinical experts, the North Carolina Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology (SPICE), while also following state and CDC guidance.
