Indoor Environment Plays Role in Virus Transmission

Indoor Air Quality
Recently, the Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (ACHR) News published an article titled, "Indoor Environment Plays Role in Virus Transmission" where they cite researchers from two universities reporting that high temperature and humidity levels may reduce the transmission of COVID-19.  However, these suggested conditions may cause occupant discomfort as they are above the ASHRAE and EPA recommended ranges for temperature and humidity. The author suggests that increased indoor ventilation may help to dilute and remove contaminants as well as providing an alternative to potentially reducing COVID-19 transmission. The article also emphasizes that there is no one measure that will solve all indoor air quality issues and that multiple controls should be implemented to create an optimal indoor environment. For the full article go to  PHASE Associates.
