Omen Uitvaartzorg, a funeral home in Wassenaar, the Netherlands, had experienced COVID-19 infections.
With up to 30 people attending each funeral, at times without masks, it was vital to find a way to prevent further outbreaks. Omen Uitvaartzorg’s management decided to install 19 Shycocan devices in public areas, including waiting rooms, the ceremonial hall and the hospitality areas.
After Shycocan had been installed, they found that not only were there reductions in employee absence because of COVID-19, but visitors felt more comfortable. Once the purpose of Shycocan had been explained, they were reassured that Omen Uitvaartzorg was going to great lengths to keep visitors safe. There have been no COVID-19 outbreaks since
