20 November 2020, Webinar – COVID-19 Ventilation related guidance by ASHRAE and REHVA

Ventilation is recognized as a major element in strategies for minimizing the risk of COVID infection. REHVA and ASHRAE have developed guidelines taking existing evidence of long-range aerosol based transmission into account including the importance of ventilation.

This webinar presented the guidelines by REHVA and ASHRAE and also had a closer look to the similarities and differences in both guidelines.

This webinar was organized by the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre  with support from ASHRAE (https://www.ashrae.org/) and REHVA (https://www.rehva.eu/). The webinar was facilitated by INIVE (http://www.inive.org/).
