Indoor Air Quality in K-12 Schools: Addressing the Concept of Layered Risk Amidst COVID-19

November 19, 2020 – 12 noon to 1:30 pm ET (9 to 10:30 am PT)


Have schools in your community been able to safely re-open?  As academic institutions continue to struggle to make sense of confusing and sometimes conflicting recommendations related to COVID-19, what are clear and common-sense strategies to consider? How much can risk to school administrators, teachers and students be reduced?  What does “safe” really mean?  Hosted by the US EPA, join experts from the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), who will discuss how to navigate the pandemic and regulatory compliance issues, as well as explore the scientific basis for guidance issued by government, health and public health organizations.  * Come prepared to ask your questions to our panelists LIVE as the bulk of our time together will be to address issues of greatest importance to you!

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
1.    Understand how the application of “layered risk reduction” strategies can foster a healthier indoor environment
2.    Implement practical guidelines with respect to air filtration and circulation, cleaning and disinfection with employee and student health and safety at the forefront
3.    Learn about a new tool designed for academic administrators to use to make the right decisions for their schools
4.    Employ a variety of technical assistance resources, materials and guidance to address IAQ issues in schools effectively
