Business owner develops a sneeze barrier to reduce Covid19 transmissions

About the solution

Kim Magraw developed the sneeze guard after receiving a call from a customer asking him to create something that would work as a barrier between people.

"It places a barrier so anybody who sneezes or has a sneeze or is breathing, the virus is unable to be transferred directly across," Magraw describes.

More than 1200 sneeze guards were sold in under a weekend. Magraw said he's had to hire more people to keep up with the demand for the products. Prices for the sneeze guard range from $150 to $400.

"We were lucky," he says. "There was an opportunity and that door opened."
