Great American Ball Park will serve as a test site for an antiviral meant to mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Grignard Pure is an “aerosol viricide” that neutralizes coronavirus in the air.
It has been tested by independent labs and proven effective at safely inactivating airborne virus particles, according to Grignard Company, which created the Grignard Pure.
The Cincinnati Reds have agreed to serve as a beta site for the viricide as the club looks forward to a shortened MLB season possibly beginning in July.
“We believe the novel aerosol antiviral capabilities of Grignard Pure may enable us to achieve (our) goals,” Reds President of Baseball Operations Phil Castellini said. “For this reason, the Cincinnati Reds organization has agreed to serve as a ‘beta’ site for Grignard Pure.”
