dc.descriptionAll HPSC guidance should be read and interpreted in conjunction with the Government's ‘Framework of Restrictions’ • Ventilation is the movement of outdoor air into a building, and the circulation of that air within the building, through mechanical or natural means • Poor ventilation in crowded indoor spaces is associated with increased risk of COVID-19 transmission; ensuring adequate and appropriate ventilation may mitigate some of this risk • Recommendations for mechanical ventilation include: o Regular maintenance of HVAC systems o Use of appropriate filters as per manufacturer’s specifications o Increase total airflow and outside air fraction o Disable air recirculation systems where possible o Extend operating hours o Avoid the use of ceiling mounted, desk and portable fans where possible • In schools that rely on natural ventilation (i.e. opening windows), the following additional suggestions are made: o Open windows as much as possible during school time, weather and comfort permitting o Use an indoor air quality meter to monitor CO2 levels, and ventilate the room when indicateden_US
