ASHRAE POSITION ON SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
“Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through the air is sufficiently likely that airborne exposure to the virus should be controlled. Changes to building operations, including the operation of heating, ventilating, and air- conditioning systems, can reduce airborne exposures.”
“On April 14, 2020, the ASHRAE Board of Directors approved the ASHRAE Position Document on Infectious Aerosols. This position document outlines ASHRAE’s position that facilities of all types should follow, as a minimum, the latest published standards and guidelines and good engineering practice.”
PURPOSE OF VENTILATION EVALUATION
The purpose of the evaluation is to assist a facility in understanding its current ventilation system and to provide recommendations, to utilize ventilation, in the reduction of the spread of infectious airborne pathogens.
