Fate and Transport of Indoor Microbiological Aerosols (FaTIMA)
A new online tool from the National Institute of Standards and Technology is intended to help curb airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 – the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Developed by air quality experts at NIST, the free tool estimates exposure to potentially infectious aerosols in indoor spaces.
Quick Tips to Increase Ventilation at Indoor Construction Sites Without Operating HVAC Systems
