From now on HEPA filters in our classrooms

From now on we have air purifiers from Blueair in our classrooms, which with their HEPA filter quickly eliminate bacteria, viruses and allergens such as pollen, dust and mould spores as well as gaseous pollutants from the air. Of course, the filters do not make corona hygiene and protection measures superfluous, but they do offer additional protection for pupils and teachers.
