Fighting for Proper Ventilation for COVID-19

Fighting for Proper Ventilation for COVID-19

Masks, shields, social distancing and sanitizing may reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, but they cannot prevent transmission if ventilation systems allow small virus particles (aerosols) to remain in the air. In this presentation, Monona Rossol will extend her October discussion on strategies for modifying recirculating ventilation systems (HVAC) to remove virus particles form the air. She will also cover the limitations of unit ventilators, HEPA air purifiers, the impact of open windows, air-conditioners, UV units (stand-alone, at the ceiling, and in-duct), ionizers, ozone, and many other real and bogus air cleaning devices.
