Halosil Partners with Correctional Facilities—like the Delaware Department of Corrections—to Slow the Spread of COVID-19 and Other Viruses

NEW CASTLE, DE (March 30, 2021) — Halosil International, Inc., the leader in whole room disinfection across a wide range of environments, has delivered the Halo Disinfection System® to correctional facilities across the nation for use against SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen that causes COVID-19. By using the HaloFogger® to uniformly distribute HaloMist (EPA Reg. No. 84526-6) across offices, jail cells, communal areas, visitor areas, and transportation vehicles, correctional officers are able to more efficiently and effectively eliminate pathogens in jails and prisons.

The HaloFogger® can be activated at the single click of a button and runs entirely in touchless mode—limiting officer exposure to potentially contaminated rooms and minimizing the risk of human error. The systems dry-fog delivery offers an odor and residue-free application and kills pathogens in hard-to-reach nooks and crannies that are often missed during manual cleaning and disinfection processes.

The Delaware Department of Corrections (DOC) is one organization that has enacted a higher standard of disinfection to combat COVID-19 and other germs. “We are using the Halo Disinfection System® as a regular part of our disinfection routine, and we increase usage in targeted areas if there is a positive COVID-19 test,” said Lt. Stephen Shyers of the James. T. Vaughn Correctional Center. Shyers is in charge of operating the HaloFogger® machine at the Delaware DOC. “I set up the machine in the hallway and open all doors to ensure the solution covers every area. This product works so well that it gets into every room.”

The application of the Halo Disinfection System® in correctional facilities aligns with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations for routine cleaning and disinfection procedures for SARS-CoV-2. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) List N has a list of EPA-registered disinfectants—including Halosil’s HaloMist—that qualify under the emerging viral pathogens program for use against SARS-CoV-2.

“We are working with various correctional facilities across the U.S. to eliminate pathogens that cause diseases like COVID-19 and influenza,” said David St. Clair, Chairman and CFO at Halosil International. “Our easy-to-use system provides the flexibility and high levels of efficacy jails and prisons require to disinfect shared and high-traffic spaces. With a shelf life of two years, our disinfectant is ideal for use both during routine cleaning and to keep in stock for emerging situations in the future.”
