The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development recently assisted in the creation of a guidance document with the California departments of Public Health and Industrial Relations to provide interim guidance for ventilation, filtration, and air quality in indoor environments. These strategies are not just for healthcare facilities but can be used to help California’s business and school communities provide safe and accessible indoor settings.
