Dry Fog Sanitation is being used to sanitize the Maui Community Correctional Center and other jail facilities across the state in an ongoing effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Department of Public Safety is using the tool as a prevention and mitigation effort to assist in increasing the sanitation and disinfection of common “hot spot” areas.

PSD’s Hawai‘i Correctional Industries recently partnered with Hawai‘i Unified (Hui Restoration) which holds proprietary rights for a patented dry fog sanitation system.

State officials say “the dry fog creates an antimicrobial barrier that continues to kill pathogens such as mold, bacteria, and viruses, including COVID-19, for up to 90 days. The sanitation solution out-performs other disinfectant routines, is non-toxic, is EPA and FDA approved, and does not damage electronic mechanisms.”

This dry fog method was applied in high traffic areas at the Maui Community Correctional Center, O‘ahu Community Correctional Center, and the Hālawa Correctional Facility, including inmate intake areas and inside inmate transport vehicles. PSD is in the process of scheduling applications at other facilities statewide.
