The AIVC board decided in their last (online) meeting of September 2020 to start a project to collect, discuss and disseminate information about COVID-19 in relation to ventilation and airtightness. A working group was created to define and carry out the project, with the title ‘Ventilation, airtightness and COVID-19’.
One of the outcomes of the project is the development of a number of questions and answers by working group members to address issues in relation to COVID‐19 and building ventilation in line with most recent scientific understanding. This 2nd special issue of the AIVC newsletter presents a new set of question and answers provided by the working group.
Highlights of this newsletter:
- AIVC webinar “Building ventilation: How does it affect SARS-CoV-2 transmission?” – 1 April 2021 (17:00-18:30 CET)
- AIVC’s COVID‐19 Working Group FAQs
- REHVA calculator to estimate the effect of ventilation on COVID‐19 airborne transmission
- Previously published FAQ related to COVID‐19
The newsletter is freely accessible here.
