COVID-19 has changed everything for every business. But none more so than in the hospitality sector, where the safety of guests and the need for good air quality is greater than ever.
These days, working in the hospitality industry is a challenge. The constant influx of guests makes it hard to stay ahead of dust mites, odours, germs, bacteria and viruses.
Both the BMJ (British Medical Journal) and the BMA (British Medical Association) say there is strong evidence that good ventilation is vital in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 – especially in hospitality settings such as Restaurants, Pubs and Hotels.
‘If we accept that someone in an indoor environment can inhale enough virus to cause infection when more than 2 metres away from the original source—even after the original source has left—then air replacement or air cleaning mechanisms become much more important.’
