It seems like every day we’re leaing something new about coronavirus and how to combat it. Luckily we’re not leaing it from scratch. Then National Air Filtration Association (NAFA)n has guidelines and recommended practices for filtration for airboe infections containment rooms in health care facilities. Initially designed for diseases such tuberculosis, the process and system is well documented and aligns with protecting against COVID-19.n

It starts with the negative pressure rooms. The idea is to keep infectious particles from leaving the room. Air removed from these rooms is filtered or exhausted outside to insure that infection is not spread from room to room. And NAFA guidelines call for this happening 10-12 times per hour.n

Properly installed, sealed and tested HEPA filters are integral to the process, especially when there are space issues pushing the air outside. You’ll want to get someone who is trained and certified to work with the HEPA filter. Choosing the right installer is as important as choosing the right filter.n
