Over the past year, the COVID-19 Pandemic drove an intense focus on the risk of virus transmission in indoor environments, including commercial, institutional, and public buildings.

Jeff Nichols, PE, CEM, BCxP, LEED® AP, will summarize the research and facilitate a discussion about airborne virus transmission. Additionally, he will highlight the importance of ventilation strategies in reducing the probability of infection.

Increased ventilation provides a direct dilution benefit and is one of the primary methods for reducing concentrations of indoor contaminants. ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force postures that building operating and maintenance procedures should adhere to current accepted ventilation standards.

Additional supplementary guidance suggests that temporarily increasing ventilation rates above current levels until the community risk of infection returns to safe levels may be warranted.

This webinar will review what we have learned over the past 12 months and what are the best ventilation strategies today and future considerations going forward.
