“The school facilities division is implementing a strategic approach to help maintain the health and safety of all building occupants.” — John Shea, Chief Executive Officer of Division of School Facilities
“I know about the filters because I’m friends with the custodian, but I don’t know if everyone else knows. It would make them feel like I feel—a little bit safer..” — Ieisha Borden, Secretary to the Principal of Boys and Girls High School.
New York City was the first major school system in the United States, to authorize the use of MERV-13 filtration in through-the-wall window air conditioners to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn was an early adopter of MERV-13 filtration for their numerous window air conditioning units. MERV-13 filters have been shown to reduce students’ risk of viral transmission and protect students from contracting the SARS-CoV-2 virus because the filter is significantly more efficient at capturing the virus than more commonly used air conditioning filters.
