Preparation in the Pandemic: How Schools Implemented Air Quality Measures to Protect Occupants from COVID-19


This report is the first known national (in the USA) effort to collect school district-level data on experiences and challenges in implementing IAQ measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The results suggest that school districts still have unmet needs in addressing indoor air quality, in particular, when faced with cost constraints and outdated building infrastructure in the face of changing conditions.

This study fills a critical gap in informing how policymakers and non-profits can better serve schools’ needs as they continue to face uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to face in future ones.
