Reducing the risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, relies on effective cleaning and disinfection, along with public health strategies like testing and social distancing. Recent studies have indicated that exposure to aerosolized SARS-CoV-2 mass can facilitate the spread of COVID-19. As indoor environments (e.g., schools, businesses, mass transit) continue to repopulate, more attention is being focused on technologies that claim to reduce or eliminate virus transmission via aerosols while operating safely in occupied spaces.
EPA researchers are evaluating the efficacy of different types of aerosol treatment technologies in reducing airborne concentrations using a large-scale test chamber and standardized testing approach. Researchers are establishing protocols for evaluating efficacy of aerosol treatment products to help facilitate cross-technology comparisons.
Additionally, alternative methods that supplement regular cleaning and disinfection are being investigated by EPA researchers. Ozone disinfection has been identified as a potential method for disinfection of surfaces contaminated with SARS-CoV-2. This webinar will discuss results from evaluating the efficacy of such methods and real-world application.
