Virtual Workshop: Airborne Transmission of SARS-CoV-2
August 26, 2020 @ 6:00 am - August 27, 2020 @ 1:30 pm
There is much we don’t know about the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. We know it can spread from an infected person’s sneeze or cough. But what do we know about transmission via speech and exhaled breath? How long do infectious particles linger in the air? How far can they travel? This Environmental Health Matters Initiative (EHMI) workshop will delve into the rapidly evolving science on the spread of the virus, as part of a larger body of COVID-19 related work at the National Academies. We will feature experts in aerosol science, virology, infectious disease, and epidemiology.
The workshop will take place over two days, both of which will last from 10:00am ET to 5:30pm ET. Visitors will only need to register through Eventbrite once to receive participation information for both days of the workshop.
