Sharing practical information about indoor air quality with community spaces

In Progress


Work and Health

Improvements to indoor air quality can help limit transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. We’re working with researchers with expertise in engineering, indoor air quality, epidemiology, public health and knowledge translation to help share practical information about improving indoor air quality with community spaces in Toronto and beyond.

Here are some resources from our team

Indoor air office hours

Do you work at a community space or congregate setting (like a shelter or a group home)? Would you like advice about reducing transmission of COVID-19 through indoor air quality measures like ventilation and filtration? Here’s your chance! You can ask questions about HVAC systems, portable air filters, UV disinfection, and more! You can ask questions about particular rooms—like bathrooms, clinics or sleeping areas—or your whole building. These sessions are open to anyone working in community spaces including facility managers; people responsible for infection prevention and control; and workers who have questions about how indoor air quality measures can help make workplaces safer for everyone. For more information and booking instructions for Fall 2022 office hours, please see our flyer here.

Coming soon from our team

  • A detailed roadmap outlining how congregate settings and community spaces can help reduce transmission of COVID-19 through improvements to indoor air quality.
