Sanitizing for Safety

"Alexander Espinoza of V&G Cleaning Services uses an electromagnetic sanitizer with hospital-grade disinfectant to sterilize the George Mason Patriots basketball locker room against the novel coronavirus after their men's NCAA basketball game against the La Salle Explorers at Eagle Bank Arena on January 13, 2021 in Fairfax, Virginia."

One of most important images of sports during the Covid-19 pandemic is rarely seen. That is the image of leagues, teams and universities cleaning and sanitizing. 

George Mason University has been taking necessary precautions to mitigate risk amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Their efforts include reduced fan attendance, public health announcements, and continual disinfecting, cleaning to keep its players, coaches, staff, and visiting teams safe - among other policies.

We were able to shadow their efforts which help fans, players and those alike see what actually goes into keeping everyone safe day-to-day from illness.

With out efforts like these, the coronavirus pandemic that canceled seasons and tournaments worldwide in 2020, would continue to keep athletes from competing.
