Santee-Lynches featured on News 19- WLTX

Santee-Lynches Regional Council of Governments was awarded a grant for $858K to install Far-UVC Technology on school buses across our 4-county region’s 5 school districts.

Far-UVC is a technology that provides passive ongoing disinfection/sanitation, which adds a layer of resilience to protect 33,729 kids and 331 school bus drivers in our region. It is 99.9% effective at killing pathogens to include COVID-19, H1N1, SARS-CoV2 and other viruses

The COG's Executive Director was recently interviewed about the recent project. Check out the feature on WLTX's website.
