Join Dr. Mark Hernandez, PhD, PE, for an eye-opening session about COVID in ventilation systems. Learn from real science how air traveling through the system and into the occupied space affects the movement of the virus and whether there is transfer to hard surfaces. How long does COVID survive? What role does humidity play in the transfer of COVID? Learn this and more from the Director of the Environmental Engineering Microbiology and Disinfection Lab at the University of Colorado, where Dr. Hernandez works with a special focus on aerobiology science for wide-area surveillance, indoor cleaning technology and the design of aerosol disinfection systems in the built environment.
