Ventilation of shared indoor spaces
25 November 2021
If you are planning indoor events, this information from NI Business Info provides guidance on indoor air quality.
Coronavirus can spread through airborne particles and droplets that enter the respiratory system.
Tiny airborne particles can remain in the air for longer and can travel further than droplets.
In poorly ventilated spaces airborne particles can remain in the air for hours and can lead to viral particles spreading between people.
Face coverings alone may not adequately reduce the risk of airborne transmission and should not be used as a replacement for good ventilation, which limits the concentration of the virus.
CO2 monitors help identify areas of poor ventilation – details here
