Seminole County sanitizes schools with mister
SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. The Seminole County School District purchased 135 battery-powered chemical misting sprayers to disinfect all classrooms every night when school starts in less than three weeks. On Tuesday, Seminole County Schools Director of Facilities Services Kim Dove showed head custodians how to use the misters. The mister, at a cost of $1,083 per unit, emits a Coronavirus-killing chemical that is safe to humans and can even be used around food at a lesser concentration, according to the Seminole County School District. Dove said the mister will disinfect schools at night, but custodians will use a cleaning spray and cloth to clean the schools during the day. A majority of the Seminole County parents who selected a learning option chose at-home learning for their child.
