Dining out in the COVID and post-COVID era can make some people nervous about all sorts of potential health risks. Wahoo’s Fish Taco in Los Alamitos takes these concerns seriously, and the business – which already boasts HEPA air purifiers in the dining area – has invested in technology called J.Protect that employs ultraviolet light to defend against both bacteria and viruses.

This J.Protect system by Israel-based company Juganu is the first one installed in the United States, though the technology is used elsewhere in the world already. J.Protect uses the power of ultraviolet A (UV-A) and, optionally, ultraviolet C (UV-C), to inactivate bacteria and viruses, up to and including the virus that causes COVID-19.
