Indoor Air Quality and COVID-19
So much is still unknown about the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools are navigating hybrid learning and offices are planning for an eventual return to work, there are many questions on preventative measures to slow the spread of the virus.
Washing your hands, wearing a mask and social distancing are still the most effective ways to prevent COVID-19, but many people have been asking how a building’s indoor air quality can play a role in the spread of the virus. It is easy for misinformation and fear to spread surrounding so many unknowns, so we sat down with three MEP experts to get to the facts of how a building’s HVAC system can affect – or not affect – the spread of COVID-19.
To discuss what is known about the link to indoor air quality and COVID-19, we talked to Kraus-Anderson’s MEP Systems Group Manager Matt Stringfellow; Facilities Assessment Manager Tim Kittila; and Principal at KFI Engineers, Randy Christenson.
