The Rangeley Friends of the Arts has installed a new air purification system into its RFA Lakeside Theater HVAC at 2493 Main St.

This state-of-the-art Premier-One Air Purifier System uses a combination of HEPA filters and special UV lights. The system assures the safety of audiences and event participants, since the entire volume of air in the building is fully cleaned every 20 minutes.

The system eliminates bioaerosols, including infectious agents such as bacteria (streptococcus, pneumococcus, legionella, tuberculosis) and viruses (influenza, rhinoviruses, coronaviruses, SARS, common cold); VOCs including formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, tobacco smoke, and toxic mold; and allergens such as pollen, dust mite dander, insect debris, tobacco smoke, mold, fungi, mildew, pet allergens and dust.

The RFA is planning a full series of COVID-safe events for small audiences this summer, including outdoor events, gallery openings, youth camps, workshops and live theater.
