While increased ventilation from open windows in the summer months may lead to fewer concerns about COVID-19, the inverse concern is outdoor air quality.
Last month, we shared a story about a DIY project right in our office constructing Corsi-Rosenthal boxes to help with air filtration. Research is showing that DIY air filters like these could drastically slash the risk of COVID-19 infection and reduce the impact of wildfire smoke.
With the short- and long-term health implications of wildfire smoke gaining public awareness, and continuing COVID concerns in the midst, we want to ask:
Are you concerned about summer air quality?
