This presentation will discuss ventilation and filtration configuration and modifications to cope with COVID-19.
Learning Objective 1:
Assess and adapt existing HVAC systems (including air handlers, filters, ductwork and controls), and essential power.
Learning Objective 2:
Prepare measures for adapting sites.
Learning Objective 3:
Identify and qualify non-traditional air-cleaning technologies
Learning Objective 4:
Distinguish the differences in viral from other microbial infection transmission, given the unique nature of the novel coronavirus, to recognize the opportunities for specific infection mitigation.
