BEND, OR (Dec. 2, 2020) – Among its arsenal of COVID-fighting tools, Sunshine Retirement Living has deployed a new, safe and innovative ionization technology called Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization that eliminates 99.4% of the SARS-COVID-2 virus. The new technology will be installed during December and January in all high-traffic common areas at each of the company’s 34 communities across the country.
The technology, from industry leader Global Plasma Solutions, was tested by the University of Milan in September 2020 and was found to be an extremely viable and ozone-free solution to inactivate the SARS-COVID-2 virus, which causes COVID-19. The seek-and-inactivate, UL 2998-certified air purification technology comprises billions of invisible ions that eradicate harmful pathogens, particles, and odors. The technology also inactivates several other pathogens including Norovirus, Tuberculosis, Legionella, MRSA, Staphylococcus, Clostridium Difficile, E. coli, and other human Coronaviruses.
“As soon as the test results were released, showing that 99.4% of the COVID virus was inactivated by this remarkable ionization technology, we immediately decided to deploy units for the high-traffic common areas of all of our communities in the Sunshine Retirement Living network across the country,” said Luis Serrano, CEO, Sunshine Retirement Living. This technology is yet another innovation in our COVID-fighting arsenal to help keep our residents and staff as safe as possible – even safer than living in a private home that does not have this type of equipment.”
The cutting-edge technology combines with other strategies and tools implemented by Sunshine Retirement Living since the early days of the pandemic to help prevent infection at each of its assisted living, memory care, and independent living communities, including:
