COVID-19

Q: Should I adjust my ventilation system in the workplace?

A: The risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 through ventilation systems has not been studied, but is likely low, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.

Routine HVAC maintenance is recommended. Although it is never the first line of prevention, consider general ventilation adjustments in your workplace, such as increasing ventilation and increasing the amount of outdoor air used by the system, according to the website.

Maintain the indoor air temperature and humidity at comfortable levels for building occupants, according to the website.
