By May 21, 2020May 28th, 2020No Comments

With some states and cities opening up after months-long stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us will be heading back to work. While the spread of the virus is slowing down in some areas, the threat of infection still remains. In an effort to stay safe and healthy, we’ve gathered a handful of products to hopefully keep you safe and your mind at ease.

Visit Newegg’s “Back to the Office” store for more useful gear.

Disposable Facemasks

Masks back to work

If you’re getting ready to head back to the office in the next few weeks, be prepared with your own box of facemasks. This box of 50 non-medical facemasks offers three layers of material to filter droplets, dust, bacteria, and pollen. Each mask is good for one day and has a 95 percent bacterial filtration efficiency.

59S Sanitization box

If you’re the go-to person in your office for borrowing things like staplers, pens, scissors, or some other office supplies, this sanitization box may come in handy. This UVC Sanitizer Box kills up to 99 percent of germs and bacteria left on items that you use daily.

The box uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light technology to disinfect items like keys, cell phones, glasses, or any other plastic, metal, glass, or textile objects. The eco-friendly box takes just three minutes to disinfect your items and does not require any water or chemicals. A great item to keep on your desk

If you’re constantly on-the-go, this sanitization bag might be a good fit. From the same company that created the 59S Sanitization Box, the 59S Sanitizer Bag uses the same short-wavelength ultraviolet light technology to clean and disinfect your items.

After your day is done, you can place your cell phone, cups, glasses, or other tools in the bag and have any germs or bacteria killed. You can even place masks and other small cloth materials in the bag to be disinfected.

Finger Pulse Oximeter

Finger Pulse Monitor

This Finger Pulse Oximeter measures oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) and pulse rate through the pulse on one’s finger. Why would this be useful to have around the office? If you or a co-worker have any type of respiratory disease or sickness, you’ll be able to measure their SpO2 and determine whether they need emergency care.

If someone’s SpO2 falls below 90 percent, the person may need supplementary oxygen. Keep this handy with first-aid supplies in the event of sudden illness at the office – but remember it’s best not to come into work at all, if you’re feeling sick!

Non-Contact Thermometer

Temperature-sensing technology has blossomed over the years. No longer do you need to stick a thermometer under the tongue to take someone’s temperature. This thermometer takes temperatures without you having to touch the skin of the person you’re measuring – which is great for keeping things as sanitary as possible.

The thermometer measures both Fahrenheit and Celsius, and can be used on both adults and babies. It runs on two AAA batteries, which will cover about 100,000 measurements before needing to be replaced.

Dyson Desk Air Purifier

If you’re feeling uncomfortable about the air in your office, this desk air purifier can help put your worries at ease. According to Dyson, the purifier removes 99.7 percent of allergens and pollutants from the air, including bacteria and pollen. The purifier is app-enabled and monitors and purifies the air automatically then reports its actions back to the app. You can also schedule when the purifier comes on, so when you arrive to your office in the morning, the air will already be purified.
