Here is what this report says about strategies other than ventilation, filtration, or UV: Other strategies that have recently been implementedor considered in many schools (such as bipolarionization, plasma systems, portable air cleaningunits with ionizers or UV, dry hydrogen peroxide,photocatalytic oxidation) are generally considered lessscientifically defensible due to their often unprovenefficacies and due to their potential for degrading thequality of the air through the generation of harmfulsecondary pollutants.51-54 Untargeted and excessivedeep surface cleaning efforts (e.g., using foggers orelectrostatic sprayers) should not be employed for thesame reasons.55 Instead, schools should focus theirresources on reducing the risk of SARS-CoV-2 airbornetransmission.
