Eight nurseries in Castres are testing machines to treat water and transform it into virucide, which is much healthier than the cleaning products usually used.
In crèche, children do not have masks. To ensure their health, the premises are disinfected several times a day. While the components of cleaning products raise questions and are sometimes singled out for their dangerousness, alternatives exist.
