Coronavirus: New video: Let’s make sure the classroom’s properly ventilated!

19.11.2020 – Schoolrooms have to be aired out regularly to reduce the risk of infection, especially now during the coronavirus epidemic. The new video shows schoolchildren how to air out properly.

How should you air out a room to make sure the stale air is sufficiently replaced? This easy-to-understand two-minute video shows school students how to do it properly. That way the air in their classroom stays fresh longer and everyone can concentrate better.

The video also covers the familiar rules on hygiene and social distancing. They’re also available for schools in the form of a poster.
