Wisconsin restaurant installs virus-killing lights in its dining room, bar area

A Wisconsin restaurant is installing lights that reportedly kill airborne viruses

The Blind Horse Restaurant & Winery in Kohler, Wisconsin, is reportedly the first restaurant in the U.S. to install far-UVC light technology, according to a press release. 

Healthe, Inc., a Florida-based company, made the lights — called “Healthe Space” lights — which “provide real-time mitigation of harmful pathogens and viruses,” the release said.

According to the company, the lights are mounted on the ceiling and give off general light as well as “far-UVC 222 sanitizing light to clean air and surfaces.”

In June, researchers from Columbia University Irving Medical Center found that far-UVC light kills the coronavirus safely, without harming human tissue. 

According to the study, which was published in “Scientific Reports” — 99.9% of two coronaviruses that were exposed to far-UVC light were killed.
