Airborne Transmission of SARS-CoV-2

Workshop //



Aug 26 2020, 10:00 AM - Aug 27 2020, 5:00 PM EST


A virtual workshop from the Environmental Health Matters Institute


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 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.
