CDC Publishes COVID-19 Building Ventilation Strategies

CDC published a new webpage that provides a list of ventilation tools intended to apply across indoor environments to assist building owners, managers and health and safety professionals intended to help reduce the concentration and spread of SARS-CoV-2 in their facilities. However, the implementation will be specific to your environment.

PHASE Associates has extensive experience in ventilation monitoring, air monitoring and indoor air quality assessments and can assist in your facility's building ventilation strategies.
