Managing HVAC Systems to Reduce Infectious Disease Transmission

 

 

Abstract:

This presentation will begin by reviewing relevant information on airborne infectious disease transmission including disease transmission modes, infectious aerosol generation, and concepts of risk management. It will then give an overview of engineering controls including ventilation, filtration, and air disinfection and will compare their advantages and limitations. Finally, ASHRAE’s Covid-19 guidance will be introduced and summarized.
