The North Bend (Ore.) school district is taking more measures to protect its students from Covid-19. 

The district has ordered 158 air purifier units to install in every classroom and communal spaces for its 2,300 students, reports businesswire

The purifiers have been placed in Hillcrest Elementary, North Bay Elementary, North Bend Middle School and North Bend High School. Air purifiers with the proper capacity for a classroom reduce virus particle counts, so an infected student is less likely to add enough particles to infect another student.

The purifiers use specialized fans to pull air from around the room through a large HEPA filter that captures harmful microscopic particles.

School officials said that the purifiers are a supplement to their HVAC systems.
