Why should I decolonize my nose?
Many viruses enter the body through the nose where they replicate before they migrate to a person’s respiratory system. Nasal decolonization is a common practice in hospitals to combat infections from airborne pathogens. One application of Certainty SmartShield has been shown to help prevent viral replication in the nose for hours.

When used in conjunction with other recommended protective measures – like frequent hand-washing  physical distancing, and mask-wearing – Certainty SmartShield may reduce your risk of getting sick from viruses or passing viruses to others.
