IS YOUR BUSINESS COVID-19 READY?
How to operate and use building services in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) virus (SARS-CoV-2) in workplaces.
The following information is meant as an addition to the general guidance of employers and building owners that is presented in the WHO document “getting workplaces ready for COVID-19”
The above animation explains how droplets transferred into airborne particles may increase the spread of Covid-19 related diseases in our daily environment.
Transmission Routes: (Rehva Covid-19 guidance document, 3 April 2020)
Close contact transmission through large droplets (> 10 microns) , which are released and fall to surfaces not further than about 1 – 2 m from the infected person. Droplets are formed from coughing and sneezing. Most of these large droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects, such as desks and tables. People could catch the infection by touching those contaminated surfaces or objects, and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. If people are standing within 1 -2 m of an infected person, they can catch it directly by breathing in droplets sneezed or coughed out or exhaled by them.
Airborne transmission through small particles (< 5 microns), which may stay airborne for hours and can be transported long distances. These are also generated by coughing, sneezing and talking. Small particles (droplet nuclei or residue) form from droplets which evaporate and desiccate. The coronavirus particle remains active for many hours or even days. Increased ventilation is useful and will remove more particles helping the contamination effect of the coronavirus.
