In our global fight against the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, adequate ventilation has emerged as a key mitigation factor. Drawing from real-world examples from more than 100 buildings, David Moore, MPH, CIH, will share his experience and methods for expeditiously assessing ventilation in schools, businesses, and other organizations. Learners will explore preliminary lessons learned, common pitfalls, the differences in calculating air exchanges (ACH) in schools vs. businesses, and how ACH relates to removal of airborne contaminants.
