Navajo Nation Four Corners Region Partners With Four Corners Clean And Amairify For Facility Treatment With The BIOPROTECTUs™ System
WINDOW ROCK, Ariz., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Navajo Nation's leaders are pleased to announce that due to thorough diligence, it has implemented protocols for its residents and workers that guided them through one of the hardest impacted demographics during the COVID-19 pandemic. These protocols reduced the number of reported cases to only a few per day.
The Navajo Nation is home to 170,000 people in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. With limited access to healthcare facilities, the Navajo Nation began exercising precautions to plan for the emerging pandemic; first closing their schools and all casino facilities, limiting Government office operations, and implementing "shelter in place" and mask orders in a positive effort to curb COVID-19 cases.
The Nation leaders recognized that current cleaning protocols needed enhancement. In April 2020, Four Corners Clean, a Navajo owned company, was formed to provide Atomizing Disinfectant and Protection solutions across the Navajo Nation. Using Certified Industrial Hygienist procedures, Four Corners Clean atomizes liquid solutions (transforming liquid disinfectant and antimicrobials to 20-50 microns) and blankets the air and surfaces with EPA registered and FDA compliant solutions. Through its affiliation with Amairify Inc., a provider of training, equipment, distribution, and continued support through the changing post COVID landscape, Four Corners Clean has initiated treatment of facilities with The BIOPROTECTUs™ System. Additionally, Four Corners Clean will provide education and training for the Navajo Nation leaders on The BIOPROTECTUs™ System products.
As the primary service provider for the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) and only service company using BIOPROTECT™ RTU on the Navajo Nation, Four Corners Clean has applied BIOPROTECT™ RTU to the NTUA's essential service locations. It has yet to see a reemergence of cases within a 90-day timeframe where the antimicrobial has been applied.
On August 1, Jonathan Nez, President of Navajo Nation, and the Navajo Nation Council approved a $651 million spending bill to respond to the Coronavirus pandemic. A portion of these funds will be used to disinfect and protect facilities across the Navajo Nation.
Four Corners Clean is also working with Chapter Houses, which serve as regional administrative and community centers across the Navajo Nation. Chapter Houses have been key distribution centers for the communities they serve, providing food, water, livestock assistance, transportation, and other community needs. It is the goal of Four Corners Clean and Amairify to educate the population on the benefits and efficacy of proper disinfection, cleaning, and to offer them an avenue to provide lasting protection through The BIOPROTECTUs™ System.
"Four Corners Clean and Amairify have provided our people peace of mind" states Malcom Roan from the Oak Springs Chapter. "With the BIOPROTECTUs System we have begun to safely resume our operations. The services our chapter provides for our people are necessary and essential and to be able to perform our duty safely is crucial."
"The efforts the Navajo Nation has taken towards protecting its people in the wake of a tragic pandemic should be viewed as a model for other states," said Josh Yazzie, Owner of Four Corners Clean. "We have experienced this tragedy together and know firsthand how difficult it is to get through. These times require difficult decisions and the leadership amongst the Chapter Houses, the NTUA and the Navajo Government have prioritized the safety of its people at all times. Our goal is to provide a lasting step in the protection for our people and we know that having our methods replicated, as well as educating the public on cleaning, disinfecting, and applying the BIOPROTECTUs™ System, is an effective way of being a part of the continued effort."
