Podcast Topic: The importance of being an Infection Prevention Expert at Schools. Every year it is estimated that over 60 million school days lost every year to influenza and norovirus according to ISSA, costing schools billions of dollars in lost federal funding. And, according to the CDC, this year’s flu season is currently the worst over the past 10 years!

And consider this, according to a Keep Kids Healthy research conducted by Victory, over 40% of school custodians and administration admit to not having any infection prevention protocols.

Knowing these statistics, something needs to change! The way schools are cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting is not working. We want to help!
