The month of May is recognized each year as National Clean Air Month, educating people about the impact that clean air has on our lives, encouraging people to take positive steps to improve air quality — both locally and globally.
Poor air quality impacts people of all ages and walks in life, especially those sensitive to air pollution, those with asthma or heart conditions, people whose work brings them outdoors, and older adults and children.
In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, public health officials in the U.S. are increasingly proclaiming the benefits of open windows and fresh air. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests opening windows to reduce the spread of coronaviruses, and state health departments are encouraging the same measures to slow the transmission of COVID-19.
“Changing the room air is a widely used measure for infection prevention and control,” says Stephen Morse, an infectious disease researcher, and professor of epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. “It replaces any virus-contaminated air with clean air.” Opening windows is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to encourage this type of air turnover, he says.
