Immediate ASHRAE and CDC responses to COVID have called for better breathing air filtration, less air recirculation and a higher ratio of outside air. Even when scientific acceptance emerged that there is air borne transmission, tools to measure the effectiveness and guidelines for choosing practical and appropriate measures for a particular space are yet lacking. How do we measure and evaluate the potential for hazardous exposure, effectiveness of engineering controls, and overall safety outcomes?
Learn from the experiences of UIC, MIT, IMEG and Grumman Butkus to address these extreme challenges during this past, unprecedented year.
