 Framingham Public Schools Replaces Theraworx Protect Hand Sanitizer

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 (Framingham, MA) Earlier today in a press conference, Governor Baker announced that a Maryland company will pay a $550,000 settlement after an investigation by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey concluded that the vendor falsely marketed Theraworx Protect hand sanitizer as an effective product to combat COVID-19. Unfortunately, in addition to having been purchased by the MBTA, this product was also purchased for use throughout Framingham Public Schools last winter.

Once the district became aware of this information, we acted immediately to deliver effective alcohol-based hand sanitizer to all school buildings before tomorrow’s school day begins. Framingham Public Schools is committed to maintaining the health and safety of our employees and students and to engaging in risk reducing measures.
