The Simplified View
As society prepares to go back to work while the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is still very much active, building owners and operators must become educated to make the safest, most effective, and most cost-effective decisions regarding how to adjust our work environments. Here are the facts:
- Social distancing works – infection rate data strongly supports this conclusion
- Killing the pathogen itself – using soap, sterilization, and other means.
- Humidity levels need to be above 40% RH – Humidity below this causes it to spread much faster. It travels more readily in the air and the human immune system is depressed at lower RH levels.
