As part of that plan, President Biden is calling on Congress to invest $170 billion in K-12 schools and higher education, specifically highlighting increased funding for testing, cleaning and ventilation systems. Top Product Innovations’ advance indoor air quality technology, Phenomenal Aire, is proven to deactivate SARS-CoV-2 and is uniquely positioned to support the 100-day initiative.
