The potential for aerosol transmission and the role of ventilation and air cleaning have been previously considered by the SAGE Environmental and Modelling Group (EMG).

This paper aims to summarise, in an accessible way, why ventilation is important and the key practical steps that could be taken to improve ventilation to mitigate the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

While this paper focuses on ventilation it is important that other measures are maintained too, including distancing, hand hygiene, cleaning, wearing face coverings when appropriate and limiting social interactions.
