Haverhill Public Schools are using portable “germ blasters” to control the flu, which has sidelined students and staff alike.

Assistant Superintendent Michael Pfifferling shared with the media information sent to parents about the Evaclean Protexus Electrostatic Sprayer. The School Department is using three of them and is working to obtain one more. The manufacturer describes the cordless, gun-like device as a “touchless electrostatic disinfection and sanitizing system built around one standardized process and a safer chemistry with two advanced products—Protexus sprayers and PurTabs electrostatic disinfection.”

In addition, the district has stocked up on disinfecting wipes, spray and hand sanitizers.

School Director of Health and Nursing Services Katie Vozeolas recommends flu shots. “For those who have not received the flu vaccine, it is not too late and he/she should go to any pharmacy or contact their medical provider to be vaccinated.”
