With many metropolitan areas reaching further stages of reopening alongside the increase in vaccinations, indoor facilities are beginning to reopen their doors to larger audiences. Despite vaccinations and mask mandates, the CDC still recommends the importance of increasing mitigation strategies of SARS-CoV-2 to prevent a dramatic spike in cases. Therefore, the CDC has issued new guidelines on the ventilation of buildings as a solution for COVID-19 exposure mitigation.
According to the CDC “when indoors, ventilation mitigation strategies help to offset the absence of natural outdoor air and reduce the concentration of viral particles in indoor air.” Studies have demonstrated that SARS-CoV-2 viral particles rapidly spread in indoor environments. Termed as “aerosol” transmission, this form of transmission can easily spread droplets small enough to enter our lungs and respiratory system. Infectious pathogens such as the common flu, legionnaires, and SARS-CoV-2 are often spread through “aerosol” transmission.
To reduce “aerosol” transmission, the CDC recommends the following considerations to improve ventilation:
