No matter how or when you celebrate, you may be wondering how safe it is to invite guests into your home for holiday parties and meals. Will the airborne illness that must not be named (why we call it this) be the uninvited party crasher?
Making sure your home has good ventilation, along with other preventive actions–like staying 6 feet apart, correctly wearing masks, and using air cleaning devices–can help prevent you and others from getting sick. Ventilation is a wonderful tool to reduce the presence of airborne illness particles both during and after guests visit your home. But how can you know if your ventilation strategy is a good one?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) has recently published a simple, interactive ventilation tool to help you understand how effective your ventilation system/strategy is. Try it here.
