Jerusalem schools to pilot anti-COVID air filtration system

Select Jerusalem schools will be the first to pilot a new anti-COVID air filtration system, the municipality announced earlier this week.
The Jerusalem educational institutions were selected by the Health and Education ministries to lead the study, which is meant to see if such systems reduce the spread of the virus in classrooms.
“The Jerusalem municipality is a pioneer again,” the ministry said in a statement. 

During previous waves, when the weather became colder and windows had to be shut, children contracted the virus either as a result of droplets being sprayed by other students with whom they were in close contact and from the air – especially during prolonged stays in closed spaces.
Some 500 kits will be placed in select classrooms throughout the city. Participating schools will receive a number of filters that will be placed in some rooms. The classrooms in the same schools that do not receive filters will serve as the control group.

The installation and control of the devices will be done by one of the five companies selected by the Health and Education ministries for the trial; the ministries are overseeing the whole experiment. 
A spokesperson for the municipality said she was unsure specifically which filters would be installed, though the municipality stressed that the filtration system has no risk.
