Arctech Innovation has expanded its partnership with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Reckitt to develop a set of hygiene interventions and protocols to protect visitors at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Building on the successful collaboration last year that helped keep more than 30,000 delegates from over 190 countries safe from COVID-19 at COP26 in Glasgow, this same partnership is now also helping to protect hundreds of thousands of athletes, staff and spectators at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Our hygiene and virology experts worked with LSHTM to ensure the hygiene interventions proposed by Reckitt for the Commonwealth Games were robust and aligned with the latest scientific evidence.

These interventions include non-pharmaceutical hygiene interventions (NPIs) used to help break the chain of infection such as hand hygiene and surface disinfection.
