The team of researchers examined how the built environment can speed the transmission of pathogens like COVID-19 and highlighted the importance of proper HVAC ventilation practices, maintaining interior relative humidity levels to between 40% and 60%, proper lighting and exposure to daylight, and spatial configurations that might discourage social interactions as options for minimizing the transmission of COVID-19's viral particles. Read more
