As Schools Reopen, Mayfield Junior School Installs Delos’ Advanced Air Purification Technology into Classrooms to Address Student and Faculty Health

California-based elementary school becomes one of the first Catholic schools in the U.S. to implement Delos’ air purification units, over 100,000 of which have been purchased by schools nationwide

 

(PASADENA, CA)
After months of remote learning due to COVID-19 state and local mandates, Mayfield Junior School is once again returning to in-person learning. It will do so withadditional safety measures thanks, in part, to a new collaboration with Delos, one of the world’s leading wellness companies, and Humanity 2.0 Well Being, a mission-aligned wellness platform created in collaboration with the Vatican (Holy See).
On February 1, Mayfield welcomed back students in Kindergarten, First and Second-Grade. Mayfield’s campus was prepared due to significant health and safety investments and enhancements. As part of a comprehensive program called Ever Forward, Mayfield installed 50 Delos “Powered by Healthway” air purifiers, equipping each classroom with patented technology that helps remove airborne mold, bacteria, and viruses
With nearly 5,000 Catholic elementary schools in the US, the project represents a flagship for future collaboration throughout the Catholic education sector to advance student, faculty, and community health.
“Our top priority will always be the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff,” said Head of School, Joe Sciuto. “We were eager for students to return to campus, but only when it was safe to do so. From the moment our students arrive until the time they depart, we looked at every aspect of their day down to the air that they breathe.”
During the public health crisis, Delos has been supporting the nation’s largest school districts return safely to the classroom, including Chicago, Baltimore, and Miami-Dade, and recently provided the New York City public school system with over 60,000 advanced air purification units.
“For more than eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, including a collaboration with Mayo Clinic on the Well Living Lab, the first human-centered research facility dedicated to researching the indoor environment’s impact on human health,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “We’re pleased to bring this research into practice at our schools help keep
their students, teachers, staff and the broader community safer.”
Humanity 2.0 Well Being has helped spread awareness of the role of indoor environments on health and well-being, supporting the integration of Delos’ advanced air purification units in Catholic schools and universities across the country. “This collaboration at Mayfield Junior School is a seminal step in our aligned mission to integrate healthy indoor environment technologies throughout the faith-based education sector,” said Morad Fareed, CEO of Humanity 2.0 Well Being. “We have an enormous opportunity to redefine the next generation of our schools to become not just places of knowledge, but a source of health and wellbeing.”
In March 2020, Mayfield responded to the global pandemic by forming a Scenario Planning Task Force. The task force was charged with analyzing all parts of the school’s operation to identify what was needed to meet the new realities caused by COVID-19. Mayfield families are provided flexible options– Forward Remote, Forward Choice, and Forward on Campus–to experience the school’s Catholic, Holy Child educational program.

Delos Collaborates with House X to Provide Advanced Air Purification at Zero Cost to Homebuyers

Homebuyers will receive a Delos powered by Healthway multi-room advanced air purification system for their new home upon move-in.

[New York, New York – January 28, 2021] — Delos, a wellness real estate and technology company, announced today its collaboration with House X, a consumer-focused Smart Home Marketplace, to provide advanced air purification at no additional cost to homebuyers. The collaboration is part of House X’s American Dream 2021 project designed to expand home ownership, which will launch in 21 pilot cities across the U.S.

The concentration of many pollutants indoors exceed those outdoors, with both short and long term health impacts. Delos’ advanced air purification system helps remediate air quality and pathogens, pollutant particles, expel odors and remove allergens. In response to the current pandemic, air purification systems have been considered by many to be a critical supplementary approach to reducing virus transmission rates by removing airborne pollutants and contaminants.  Delos’ advanced air purification system is capable of capturing ultrafine particles and can reduce particles that carry airborne bacteria and viruses.

“From more than eight years of experience and extensive research, we know that our indoor environments can play a significant role in safeguarding our health and well-being,” said Delos CEO and Founder Paul Scialla. “We are proud to collaborate with House X to make our science-backed solutions even more accessible to people across the country.”

In addition to Delos’ advanced air purification system, House X is partnering with other providers to provide homebuyers with access to new home inventory for quick move-in, free renewable energy and a “smart mortgage” discounted one percent for the first 12 months of a qualifying 15- or 30-year fixed mortgage. Available to consumers through a virtual home buying event, House X aims to expand home ownership by educating consumers on the advantages of smart, healthier, sustainable homes that are more efficient, have a lower carbon footprint and less expensive to own, operate, protect and maintain – lowering total cost of ownership.

“Delos is the world’s leading wellness real estate platform. House X is pleased to partner with Delos to help make homes healthier by including Delos next generation air filtration systems with every home purchase,” said Will Farrell, President of House X World.

Academy Bus Selects Delos to Provide Advanced Air Purification Solutions for Motor Coaches

In response to COVID-19 and its commitment to health and safety, the company is equipping its buses with advanced air purification technology

HOBOKEN, NJ — December 17, 2020 — Academy Bus, the largest privately owned and operated transportation company in the U.S., today announced that it has selected Delos, a New York-based wellness real estate and technology company, to equip its motor coaches with “Delos powered by Healthway” advanced air purification units. The new technology is already being installed on Academy’s charter bus fleet, with plans to add the advanced air purification technology to the balance of Academy’s fleet in the coming months.

Headquartered in Hoboken, NJ, Academy Bus currently operates motor coaches up and down the East Coast from operations centers stretching from Boston to Miami, including charter and group tour services as well as daily commuter service. This collaboration is a critical step in helping safeguard the health and well-being for mass transit commuters, as offices and schools reopen across the country.

“Protecting the health and well-being of the riding public and our drivers is our main focus, as society continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic,” said Francis Tedesco, President and CEO of Academy Bus. “Ensuring a safe transportation environment for riders is key to re-instilling confidence in mass transit and long-haul bus service, especially as we look towards the end of the public health emergency gripping our nation.“

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and leading research organizations recognize that small aerosolized particles that carry the SARS-CoV-2 virus can remain suspended in air and can persist in aerosol form for long periods of time indoors. Air purification systems are considered by many to be a critical supplementary approach to reducing transmission rates by removing airborne pollutants and contaminants.  The “Delos powered by Healthway” air purification units capture ultrafine particles and can reduce particles that carry airborne bacteria and viruses. Traditional filters for mechanical HVAC solutions do not efficiently filter air particles as small as SARS-CoV-2 (.06 to .14 microns) in occupied spaces, where it matters most. The “Delos powered by Healthway” advanced air purification systems are equipped with technology that filters particles as small as .007 microns, at 99.99% efficiency.

“For more than eight years, Delos has fostered research collaborations with leading medical institutions, including a collaboration with Mayo Clinic on the Well Living Lab, the first human-centered research facility dedicated to researching the indoor environment’s impact on human health,” said Paul Scialla, Founder and CEO of Delos and Founder of the International WELL Building Institute. “We’re pleased to bring this research into practice to help people travel safely and get back to business in our communities.”
