Portable CO2 monitors and air cleaners

In 2022 we have distributed more than 12,000 portable CO2 monitors and 13,000 portable air cleaners to state and state-integrated schools to support them with good ventilation, and as part of our response to COVID-19. These devices were provided at no cost to the schools. 

State and state-integrated schools that would like to receive additional CO2 monitors or air cleaners are able to request these directly from the Ministry, by filling out the request forms at the bottom of this page. Schools, early childhood services and other education providers are also able to purchase additional CO2 monitors and air cleaners direct from the Ministry’s suppliers. 

All schools that have received devices are to record them on their fixed asset register. Schools are responsible for any ongoing maintenance, consumables or replacement devices. 

More information about these devices, including warranty and purchasing details, is provided on this page. If schools have further questions, please contact your Ministry property adviser or ventilation.mailbox@education.govt.nz.
