Norman Regional Health System and Xenex are teaming up to professionally disinfect the public’s devices this cold and flu season.

Bacteria is everywhere, and your tablet, computer or phone are all considered high-touch surfaces that are covered in germs. Scientists at the University of Arizona have found cell phones can have up to 10 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. That’s why Norman Regional and Xenex decided it was important to help you professionally disinfect your device this flu season.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, you and your family are invited to Disinfect Your Device at Norman Regional Moore’s Conference Center, 700 S. Telephone Rd. in Moore. Bring any electronic devices you would like disinfected, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, keyboards, gaming devices, controllers, and more. The devices will be placed on a rack inside Xenex’s LightStrike Disinfection Pod, which is designed to quickly disinfect devices in five-minute cycles.

In addition to the germ-zapping pod, there will also be story time with the Moore Public Library, touch-a-truck with one of EMSSTAT’s ambulance, coloring pages, giveaways and door prizes.

One lucky person will win a chance to have their home disinfected by one of Xenex’s Germ-Zapping Robots free of charge.

So stop by for some family fun and walk away knowing you and your family are protected from germs this flu season.
