How Partitions Can Reduce COVID-19 Viral Infections in Schools

How Partitions Can Reduce COVID-19 Viral Infections in Schools

It has been said that children are at low risk in terms of being infected by Corona Virus however they can still be carriers of the virus, bringing it back into the home affecting elderly relatives. However since the Prime Minister Boris Johnson closed schools and instructed that pupils with parents that are key workers to remain in school. Portable partitions can be effective in keeping children that are still in schools separated reducing the chances of spreading the virus. Especially because the younger population cannot always be relied on to wash their hands which are one of the government guidelines.

Children especially in primary school are still developing psychologically, meaning that they will find it difficult to understand what is occurring at the moment in the world. This can make it hard to tell them how to behave. This is why a room divider in primary school is a good idea for lower years in primary school.

Customised Print Room Dividers are an effective way to separate children in primary schools during this pandemic. You could have a child themed print on their making it aesthetically pleasing for young children. This will help the children adapt to the new room layout, a plain colour could give them the idea that they’re being locked away from the other children.

The Portable Partitions can be wiped with anti-bacterial wipe which will reduce the amount of dust particles and dirty hands from pupils touching the partition. This should reduce the spread of germs between the children because the surfaces are clean. Children will not help but touch the room divider, especially if it is custom printed therefore it’s important that you wipe the surface down every hour or so.

The lack of social spacing that young children have is another reason for schools to invest in a portable partition. This will ensure that they’re obeying the 2 metres social distancing that the government has enforced. Therefore, stopping the potential spread of COVID-19 going through schools and onto family members. This is even more important for children that have parents in the NHS who are needed at work more than ever who can save lives.

Schools can now hire portable partitions for the time they need. Although, it may be useful for the schools use permanently to separate certain pupils. Mobile portable partitions are effective for schools because they’re an ever changing environment e.g.) different lessons.
