Wallingford healthcare provider begins using new shoe disinfection technology amid pandemic

New Haven Register By Ben Lambert  Updated 8:20 am EDT, Friday, July 10, 2020 WALLINGFORD — Gaylord Specialty Healthcare announced this week that it had begun using a new technology to disinfect shoes as it takes further safety measures amid the coronavirus pandemic. Officials said the organization was the first in New England to “implement UVZone shoe disinfection technology from Florida-based PathO3Gen Solutions as part of an ongoing effort to protect patient and staff safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic.” The sanitation system uses “an exclusive and multi-patented combination of Ozone and UVC light” to eliminate the vast majority of pathogens, including any “coronavirus residue on footwear in eight seconds,” Gaylord officials said.
