The pandemic has changed our expectations for health and safety in the buildings we occupy and visit. As we shift our focus from reacting to immediate SARS-CoV-2 virus risks to a proactive approach to wellness in existing facilities and new building design, what are the most effective strategies to address continuing risks from the pandemic and promote general health and wellbeing. While the recently approved vaccines promise some relief from the threat of COVID-19, they do not remove all risks.
What are the most effective and practical measures to support occupant wellness, reduce transmission risks from likely pathogens, and assure the people who occupy and visit our buildings that their health and safety has been prioritized? This session will review known and anticipated health risks in buildings and explore a balanced approach to health, wellness and resilience in new construction and existing building operations.
