Ventilation & filtering (Disinfecting)

•Ventilation & filtration provided by ventilation, heating, & air-conditioning can reduce the airborne concentration of the virus that causes COVID-19 (which may reduce the risk of airborne transmission).
• Check to ensure that your philtres are correctly configured & recommend upgrading the philtre to the highest-rated philtre that your system can handle.
• Systems only clean the air while the fan is working, so the system fan can run longer or continuously. Several systems can be set up to run the fan even when there is no heating or cooling.
• When properly used, air purifiers can help to eliminate airborne pollutants, including viruses, in the home or enclosed spaces.
• Boost indoor air circulation to increase indoor air quality:
•If necessary, open windows or screen doors.
•Use a window air conditioner that has an outside air intake or a fan, with the fan open.
•Open the system’s outdoor air intake if yours has one (this is not common).
•Use a bathroom fan while the bathroom is in use or continuously, if possible.
•Avoid doing so when outdoor air pollution is high, or when your home is too cold, sticky, or humid.
• Caution should be taken with portable ventilation devices, e.g. fans, to minimize air flowing from one person directly to another to avoid the possible spread of any airborne or aerosolized viruses.
• Operating your machine, using an air purifier or portable air cleaner & growing ventilation is not enough to protect yourself & your family from COVID-19.
• The use of ozone generators in populated areas is not recommended. When used at amounts that do not meet public health requirements, indoor-air ozone does not efficiently kill viruses, bacteria, moulds, or other biological contaminants.

•Caregivers can supply the individual who is sick with personal cleaning supplies (if appropriate). Supplies include tissues, paper towels, cleaners, & if you feel like you are sick, you can clean your room.
• If shared bathroom: the person who is ill should be washed & disinfected after each use. If this is not possible, the caregiver should wait as long as possible before washing & disinfecting the skin.
• Remain separate if possible, the person who is sick should eat (or be fed) in their room.
• Utensils & Wash dishes using disposable gloves & hot water: treat any used dishes, cups/glasses, or gloves of silverware. Clean with soap & hot water or in a dishwasher.
