The New York Islanders hockey team is hoping new air filtration technology will zap airborne viruses inside the new $1.5 billion UBS Arena in Elmont, New York, which opens in November 2021, CNBC’s Jabari Young reports.

Oak View Group, an arena development firm, is spending $2 million on virus-killing technology that will clean the air throughout UBS Arena.

The tech circulates air and kills viruses with high-intensity ultraviolet lighting, cleaning the air before its pumped back into breathing spaces. Similar systems are used in smaller spaces such as hospitals and locker rooms throughout the National Football League.
