An Orange County business switched their business model to protect students during the coronavirus pandemic.
Eclipse Shading Systems, in Wallkill, has created the E-Shield - a fire retardant, vinyl barrier. By either pulling it down or pressing a button, it acts as a divider to add an extra protective layer from the virus.
The company says more than 100 customers have bought E-Shields, like limo service MTC Limousine in Bedford Hills and local schools.
Larry Bedosky, who oversees marketing for the company, says because more people are staying home, their retractable sun shades are also flying off the shelf.
News 12 is told SUNY Orange, Beacon and Haldane schools have also purchased E-Shields.
