New York, NY – WEBWIRE

The COVID pandemic brought renewed focus on the importance of IAQ and the role it plays in successful infection control programs at schools and universities.

The first day of the school year for New York City Public Schools is September 7th. Students and teachers in many other parts of the country have already returned to the classroom, but regardless of when the school year begins, an essential component for learning and thriving is healthy indoor air quality (IAQ).

For years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been reporting about programs that promote healthy IAQ and their ability to improve health, increase students’ ability to learn, improve test scores, and also improve adult productivity in the school system. EPA warns that failing to prevent or respond promptly to IAQ problems can increase long- and short-term health effects for students and staff. These could include:

  • Coughing
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Allergic reactions
  • Aggravate asthma and/or other respiratory illnesses
  • In rare cases, contribute to life-threatening conditions such as Legionnaire’s disease or carbon monoxide poisoning

“The COVID pandemic brought renewed focus on the importance of IAQ and the role it plays in successful infection control programs at schools and universities,” said Frank Selamie, President of CTSI. “Many of these institutions responded by increasing ventilation rates and investing in air purification and filtration systems to mitigate the spread of the virus. Those actions have also helped to decrease student and faculty exposure to other airborne viruses, mold, bacteria, chemicals, odors, particulate matter and other contaminants.”

With offices in New York and Florida serving clients nationwide, the building science, infection control, and indoor air quality professionals at CTSI have decades of experience helping schools, colleges, and universities optimize indoor conditions to mitigate the spread of pathogens while creating conditions that are conducive for learning and excellence.
