School HysteriaWill schools reopen?

When fall arrives, will the students return to school? If administrators put off ordering essential infection control supplies and PPE, they might be left unprotected!

School districts across the United States are being forced to reconsider their reopening plans and even reverse course for the upcoming school year, as coronavirus infection rates continue to spike and hot zones remerge. 

The resurgence of the coronavirus in the United States has ignited fierce debates about whether to reopen schools. Global health officials warn that the pandemic will intensify and are calling for shut-downs. The White House on the other hand insists that America's schools reopen for in-person education this fall.

While the debate rages on, school administrators shouldn’t wait to purchase supplies essential to defending against the spread of the coronavirus. If you are a school official, administrator or in charge of Environmental Health and Safety, you will most likely need to secure personal protection equipment (PPE) for staff, students and visitors. Surface barriers, hand sanitizer and surface disinfectants too! The longer you wait, the harder these will be to procure.

You can’t afford to gamble on a school shut-down so we urge you to shop MDS for your essential infection control supplies sooner rather than later!

In case you haven’t heard, there are dramatic shortages affecting PPE all across the USA and world. Hoarding, infection spikes, 90-day inventories, raw material shortages, public/consumer demand and factory allocations continue to devastate the supply chain. But don’t worry …

MDS has competitively priced essential supplies to help combat the cross-contamination of infectious pathogens and bacteria.  Below are popular items purchased by educational facilities across the country!
