As museums grapple with the decisions of reopening and addressing short-term and long-term issues related to the facility’s air quality, they face a myriad of options that are being touted by manufacturers, consultants, and other people they rely on for guidance. One issue that has arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic, is the understanding that the virus can move throughout a space in an aerosolized form. This Webinar will attempt to explain the following:
- How aerosols behave in the air
- What are the various systems on the market to address the concerns of virus remediation?
- What is the impact each system may have on your collections?
- What is the impact each system may have on your sustainable profile or energy usage?
- Who should you turn to for guidance?
- What questions should you be asking of your consultants?
- Who from your organization should you have at the table reviewing various systems?
Our speakers are:
- Dr. Peter DeCarlo, Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering in the Whiting School of Engineering
- Todd Garing, PE, LEED AP BD+C, Vice President of Mueller Associates
- Jeremy Linden Principal/Owner of Linden Preservation Services, Inc.
- Mark Keen, AIA, LEED AP, PMP, President of Keen-DC, LLC
