Airflow and Ventilation
KBA-01640-Z9H4P5
Question
What mitigating factors have been instituted across campus to help with indoor airflow and ventilation –particularly in areas with heavy in-person traffic such as the Warrior Hub where alternate ventilation (such as opening windows) is not possible? Why does plexiglass and face fields continue to be recommended when we know they do little to prevent airborne illness?
Answer
Campus ventilation systems have been serviced and maintained to operate per design intent. Where possible,system run times have been extended to provide additional daily air exchanges.
Plexiglass and face shields can provide additional protection, such as reinforcing social distance.But,they do not replace the use of vaccination and face masks as the primary means of protection against virus transmission.
