In response to COVID-19, on March 17th, Hermanson’s Brad Sharp, TAB/Commissioning/Controls Manager was part of a webinar hosted by BOMA Seattle-King County and viewed by over 800 individuals that featured a panel of experts in public health, building maintenance, property management, and legal services. You can listen to the webinar here.

Since his participation in the webinar, Brad has been fielding calls from area Mayors, Governors, and public and private healthcare policy makers about indoor air quality and ventilation system infection control.  Over the next several days, Hermanson will be offering a deeper dive into this important issue by posting a series of the questions and responses that are on the minds of building owners, managers and maintenance personnel across the country.

Today’s question establishes the basis for best practices and outlines the agencies doing the research to create them.  Follow along as Brad discusses the role of filtration, air circulation, the risk to maintenance personnel and offers best practices to help mitigate infection control.
