Managing ventilation in small facilities

Covid risk reduction

Virus particles remaining suspended in tiny exhaled droplets, referred to as “aerosols are likely
responsible for several kinds of transmission events, including superspreading events and transmission
in managed isolation and quarantine facilities (MIQF). This mode of transmission is of particular interest
as we accept that contacts may not always be in the same room at the same time, as was initially
thought for COVID19. Reducing the risk of airborne transmission can be achieved by reducing the spread
of virus from an infected person, decreasing the viral load in the air, and reducing the risk of someone
inhaling infectious particles.
