The Future of Respiratory Virus Mitigation in Buildings

The Future of Respiratory Virus Mitigation in Buildings.

As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and other respiratory viruses, the importance of mitigating indoor transmission of these diseases in buildings has become a critical concern. To address this issue, GPS Air’s Vice President of Products and Marketing, Kevin Boyle, and Founder and CTO, Charles Waddell, shared their insights and expertise on the latest episode of Conversation to the Edge by Service Logic.

During the episode, the experts emphasized the importance of a multi-faceted approach to respiratory virus mitigation in buildings. Strategies include increasing ventilation and filtration, implementing social distancing protocols, increasing cleaning and disinfection, and encouraging the wearing of face masks or other personal protective equipment (PPE). These methods aim to reduce the concentration of respiratory viruses in the air and on surfaces, making it less likely for people to contract the virus.

Waddell stressed the significance of a multi-layered solution approach, combining multiple technologies to achieve better results. The approach involves engineering and administrative controls, PPE, social distancing and hygiene practices, and monitoring and tracking.

Boyle also highlighted the critical role of indoor air quality (IAQ) in respiratory virus mitigation. Poor IAQ can increase the risk of respiratory infections and aggravate existing respiratory conditions. Buildings that are poorly ventilated or have high levels of indoor air pollution can create an environment conducive to spreading respiratory viruses such as COVID-19.

Building owners and managers are urged to work with public health officials and experts to develop and implement effective respiratory virus mitigation strategies. By employing the right techniques and strategies, the risk of indoor transmission of respiratory viruses can be reduced, making buildings safer for everyone.
