Thank you to Frankie, Robin and Ralph for an excellent webinar today!  Not only was the content excellent, it was nice to see your faces since we can’t be together in San Francisco for the National Meeting.


I did have a follow up question that may or may not have made it into the chat.  We normally talk about dilution ventilation and exhausted enclosures for protection from inhalation hazards.  In this situation, however, dilution might just more widely disperse viable virus particles.  You mentioned ionization, UV systems and HEPA filtration to control virus particles but all of those options might require significant time and investment.


Other ideas?
