COVID-19 Ventilation Guidance

In addition to the Mandatory General Requirement and the prevention requirements issued by Labor & Industries to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the workplace, they are also providing ventilation guidance to ensure adequate ventilation throughout the workplace can help maintain a safe and healthy workplace.  Employers should work with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professional to optimize building ventilation. An HVAC professional can ensure that the ventilation system is operating as intended.
