With many organizations today having their staff work remotely because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, planning for workplace re-occupancy requires the implementation of appropriate control measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 within the building. Building systems are not the problem. Returning personnel are the transmission agents and the source that cross-contaminates the building. A return-to-work decision triggers a shared responsibility with a common goal to create an environment that does not contribute adverse health consequences to building occupants.

COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that is primarily spread by airborne transmission, person-to-person. Secondarily, it is spread by contaminated surfaces.  Join the Capital Chapter for a timely presentation and Q&A from Dr. Karen Singleton, Don Franklin and Allan Burt from Building Health Sciences. They will share practical guidance, based on the public health model, to prevent or reduce the incidence of COVID-19 in the workplace by identifying relevant risk factors and employing interventions to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19.
