Late last month, new COVID-19 safety guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) loosened recommendations for when and where Americans should wear masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, allowing most people to go without them in public indoor spaces. As masks come off and the cleaning industry shifts from a pandemic outlook to an endemic view, there remains concerns about contamination and indoor air quality (IAQ) plus the dilemma of how to properly monitor the situation to keep building occupants safe and healthy.

In this episode of BioTalk, a GBACtv production, learn how the cleaning industry can respond to an increased risk of indoor air contamination and how building sciences are identifying critical issues and addressing them. ISSA Media Director Jeff Cross and his co-host Patricia Olinger, Executive Director of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, delve into IAQ concerns and solutions with John Cordier, Epistemix CEO and co-founder, and the University of Colorado’s College of Engineering’s Mark Hernandez.

Watch or listen to the complete episode below to find out how to improve and monitor your facility’s IAQ, even in the face of a global endemic. You can also download an audio MP3 of the episode here.
