Description The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has caused a worldwide upheaval in the way we work and live. The government’s Chief Scientific Advisor has acknowledged that airborne transmission is a route, particularly in poorly ventilated spaces. As a result, organisations are being advised that workplaces boost ventilation so indoor air is sufficiently diluted to eliminate the potential for airborne viral transmission. For ventilation to be effective not only is the quantity of air important but the patterns of air distribution too.
