COVID-19 Doesn’t Like Look Solutions Fog & Haze

By March 12, 2020

When you can see the air, such as when it’s full of fog or haze, you are more inclined to worry about the things that are in it.  Today, people are especially worried about the chance of Coronavirus in the air.

Performers and technicians may be inclined to believe that the fog is helping potential Coronavirus move from Point A to Point B, but actually the opposite is true! 

“Under controlled laboratory conditions, triethylene glycol vapor has been found to exert a rapid lethal action against a wide variety of infectious airborne agents.”  It’s been demonstrated against “influenza, meningopneumonitis, and psittacosis.” Although it has not been tested specifically on Covid-19, there’s no reason to think that this virus would react differently from the other viruses.

In conclusion, although Look Solutions fog and haze does not literally sanitize the air, it does help prevent the transmission of viruses through the air, so if you have to work in fog you should not worry about any increased exposure, and in fact your exposure will be less.
