COVID-19 fuels a drive to improve indoor air quality as more office workers return to their buildings.
As more people return to the office and masks are coming off, clean indoor air will be key to helping everyone stay safe from COVID-19 and other viruses. Most scientists now concur that COVID-19 is airborne, meaning it spreads via microscopic aerosols floating in the indoor air. To fight airborne diseases, many office buildings have added enhanced ventilation and filtration systems to continuously purify the air. This is similar to commercial airliners, where the air is refreshed every three minutes.
