Building Ventilation and Minimizing Exposure to COVID-19 and Airborne Diseases

May 31, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


COVID-19 and other infectious diseases spread through respiratory particles that are inhaled and cause infection. Particles can remain suspended in the air and travel distances greater than 6 feet, increasing the risk of infection in indoor environments lacking proper ventilation. Join us this week as we learn the fundamentals of building ventilation, including important steps that can be taken in your workplace to reduce transmission of airborne viruses.
