COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets that are inhaled and cause infection. There is growing evidence these droplets 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 the virus.
