Last week hundreds of doctors, scientists, engineers and experts submitted a letter asking for Canada to take stronger action against the airborne spread of COVID-19.
Canadians have reduced the spread on physical surfaces by disinfecting surfaces, wearing masks, frequent hand washing and not touching our faces. However “With winter upon us, our activities are moving indoors and it is therefore imperative that workplaces, public institutions and individuals understand the risk of aerosol transmission as well as the actions that can be taken to combat it”.
As a result, the Public Health Agency of Canada “advises Canadians to avoid the three c’s: closed spaces with poor ventilation, crowded places with many people and close faces, such as close-up conversations.”
But, avoiding and fixing closed spaces with poor ventilation can be a tough task. For instance, “We know that many workplaces, buildings and residences in our communities have substandard ventilation” according to this letter submitted by the doctors and scientists. Furthermore, with the cold winter weather here, we can no longer improve poor ventilation in these spaces by opening a window.
However, you have no need to fear as we have solutions that can improve ventilation, air quality and remove airborne viruses from the air in workplaces and buildings. Look below at the JADE and EcoAir to keep yourself and your workers safe this winter from airborne diseases.
