National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan
March 8, 2022
In January 2021, the newly elected administration published a “National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response”. The strategy was developed to give people the tools they needed to protect themselves, reopen schools, and get the economy moving again. Last week, that strategy was updated and is now part of a “National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan.”
One notable goal of the new preparedness plan includes preventing economic and educational shutdowns. For the country to move forward, schools and businesses must be given the tools they need to reopen and remain open safely. To prevent future economic and educational shutdowns, the government will implement various measures.
Workers will be entitled to sick pay due to a COVID-19 absence or if they need to care for a loved one with COVID-19. This will be paid in the form of tax credits to small and medium-sized companies.
Clear Guidelines and Technical Support to Improve Indoor Air Quality
If we are to keep schools and businesses open, the government has made it clear,
“Improvements to ventilation can maximize health outcomes. When indoors, effective ventilation strategies can help reduce viral particle concentration, as well as other indoor air contaminants.”
At the beginning of the pandemic, the CDC, the EPA, and the WHO developed a set of guidelines advising the use of portable HEPA air purifiers in schools, offices, and other public buildings. To guarantee a safe return to school and work, the government will continue to provide schools and offices with the guidance and technical support they need to improve indoor air quality.
EPA’s Clean Air in Buildings Check List
The EPA will provide additional resources, in the form of a set of recommendations, that all buildings can follow to improve ventilation and air filtration.
• The checklist will provide links to other government resources, including the CDC, the EPA, and the DOE.
• It will include steps on how to increase the amount of outdoor air coming in by opening windows, doors, dampers, and other air openings.
• It will also explain the need for cross ventilation and how HVAC systems can be improved.
• It will outline how the use of portable HEPA air filtration can help to reduce the number of viral particles in the environment and therefore reduce the risk of infection.
The government will then call on building owners, managers, business owners, and organization leaders to take on these key strategies as part of the “Clean Air in Buildings Challenge.”
Clean Air in Buildings Challenge
To encourage organizations to follow the EPA’s “Clean Air in Buildings Checklist”, the government will also introduce a “Clean Air in Buildings Challenge” to help organizations develop key strategies to improve ventilation. The government will also create a recognition program that acknowledges when air quality and ventilation have been improved.
Funding Is Available for Schools and Business
To guarantee schools and other organizations achieve the strategies outlined in the “Clean Air in Buildings Challenge,” the government provided $350 billion to state and local governments and an extra $130 billion to schools to finance the ventilation and air purification upgrades needed.
Build Awareness of the Need for Effective Ventilation and Air Filtration
The demand for safe, effective indoor air filtration has grown exponentially over the last few years but there is still work to be done. The government is committed to building public awareness and communicating the need for adequate ventilation and filtration to help protect against COVID-19.Study finds air pollution linked to 6 million premature births worldwide
Air pollution is the main cause of premature birth
For the purposes of the study, the team looked at a baby’s gestational age at birth, along with the number of babies born early or underweight. Allowing for factors such as smoking, alcohol use and diet, they believe air pollution is the leading cause of low birth weight and premature birth.
Premature birth leads to complications later in life
While those first few months of life carry the most risk for premature babies, even those who survive, are not completely out of the woods. Being born early can lead to an increased risk of serious illness later on, including long-term intellectual and developmental disabilities, and complications associated with respiratory health and sight.
Pollution affects us all through our lives
This particular study focused on the effects of air pollution for newborns, but dirty air impacts our health all through our lives, from the time we are conceived, right up until our senior years. Pollution affects our fertility, the health of our unborn babies, it increases the risk of infections, and puts children at risk of allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, eczema and dermatitis. Teenagers exposed to high levels of pollutants are more likely to suffer from mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and psychosis. And in our senior years, exposure to pollutants increases our risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Pollution from wildfires in the US is the highest in 10 years
We generally associate the worst air pollution with countries such as India and China. But in recent years, the prevalence of wildfires is having a major impact on air quality much closer to home. This year, smoke from fires on the west coast of the US travelled across the country, affecting air quality thousands of miles away. In fact, analysis of federal satellite imagery shows that Americans are breathing more wildfire smoke now than they did ten years ago.
Now is the time for change
Multiple studies show, air pollution puts an enormous burden on our health, but it could be avoided. According to Tim Nawrot, an environmental epidemiology professor at Hasselt University in Belgium, the findings of this study have given us the chance to look at data in a new, previously unseen way. His message is clear…
“Science has provided the full translation…. Policymakers have to pick it up and do something with it.”
Austin Air, the #1 choice for FEMA and the American Red Cross
The unique filter technology used in Austin Air Purifiers is clinically proven to remove a wide range of airborne pollutants, including chemical’s, VOC’s, allergens, viruses and bacteria. The results of independent clinical trials, carried out by some of the country’s leading institutions, show Austin Air Purifiers are effective at improving asthma in children and help reduce trips to the ER.
The best smell is no smell, with Austin Air!
It’s tempting to try to mask the bad smells with diffusers and room sprays, but this really is a short-term fix and doesn’t get rid of the smell. Furthermore, for anyone with allergies, asthma, or other sensitivities, the chemicals used in air fresheners can be a real trigger.
When you’ve dealt with the source of the smell, keep your home smelling clean and fresh with an air purifier from Austin Air. Voted best air purifier for VOC’s by the New York Times, an Austin Air Purifier will effectively remove odors, bacteria, viruses, allergens, VOC’s and chemicals from your home. Not only will the air in your home smell amazing, it will also be safe, free from allergens and other airborne contaminants.
VOC’s from everyday items
VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) are difficult to avoid in modern homes. New furnishing, carpets, flooring, curtains, paint and cleaning products can all emit VOC’s. Some are harmful on their own and some react with other airborne pollutants to become a risk. According to the EPA, VOC levels in our homes are up to five times higher than outdoors. To reduce the risk of VOC’s in your home, look out for natural products that don’t use chemicals. And if you do use paints and cleaners that emit VOC’s, be sure to store them correctly, away from your living area, such as in a garage or outdoor shed.
Most homes have a distinctive smell but because it’s yours, you probably won’t notice it.
Are you ‘nose blind’?
Litter trays, animal beds, the trash bin, your fridge.… There’s a long list of things that can cause a stink in your home. But if you’ve become accustomed to them, you won’t always know your home smells a little funky. This is known as ‘nose blindness’. Our brains are programmed to allow familiar smells to fade into the background, this guarantees the new smells stand out. It’s our brains way of protecting us, ensuring we smell smoke from a fire, or food that has gone bad.
Of course, if you have a house full of teenagers or pets, there’s a good chance you’re struggling to keep your home smelling mountain fresh. But we can’t blame it all on the kids or the dog, so let’s take a look at a few other reasons why your home might need freshening up.
Does your home smell like a locker room?
Now this may be your teenager’s inability to empty their gym bag, but if it’s not, you could have a build-up of bacteria in your heating system that needs looking at. ‘Dirty sock syndrome’ is a thing and it happens when bacteria have the chance to build up in your HVAC, and as we know, where there’s bacteria, there’s generally a bad smell.
A whiff that’s musty and dusty?
A musty or dusty smell is a good indicator that mold is present. Mold loves warm, damp environments such as basements and bathrooms. Keep an eye out for leaks and make sure your space is well ventilated to stop mold from taking hold.
A wet dog smell without the dog?
The smell of wet dog is quite distinctive. But did you know that rodents give off the same smell. So if you notice a wet dog smell and you don’t have a dog, you may have some unwanted house guests.
A cat smell that you can’t blame on the cat
Even people without cats can experience that ‘cat smell’ in their homes. This may be another sign that you have a mold problem. Certain types of mold have a distinctive smell that is similar to cat urine. So if you notice the smell and you know its not kitty, you may have a mold problem that needs addressing pronto.
A fishy smell that isn’t coming from the kitchen
If you notice a fishy smell in your home, it could be an indication that you have faulty wiring and are at risk of a house fire. This is not something you can ignore and will need investigating ASAP.
Rotten eggs could be a sign of danger
Around 50% of homes in America use natural gas for heating, hot water, cooking, or drying clothes. Natural gas is actually odorless, so to ensure we know when there’s a leak, gas companies add an odorant that smells bad enough for us to notice. If you detect a rotten egg smell in your home, it could be a gas leak. You’ll need to vacate the property straight away, without touching any lights or appliances. When you are safely out of the home and some distance away, call the gas company.
Is your school wasting their covid relief funding?
November 22, 2021
Since the beginning of the pandemic, schools have worked tirelessly to put measures in place to keep students and teachers safe. But without clear guidance and fake claims from a number of so-called air cleaning companies, schools across the country spent millions of their covid relief budget on air purifiers that were not fit for purpose.
Schools waste millions of dollars on untested technology
One such story involved the Sacramento City Unified School District, where thousands of unused air purifiers sat in shipping containers, amidst concerns that they could potentially release dangerous pollutants into the classroom.
According to an investigation carried out by KHN, over 2,000 schools across 44 states, installed air-purifying technology such as ionizers, that as yet remain untested in real life situations.
NYC Schools left unprotected
In another independent investigation, this time by WNYC/Gothamist, it has come to light that a lobbying campaign, targeting a broad set of senior officials, including Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, resulted in a number of ineffective, non-HEPA units being purchased at rock bottom prices. The start-up, Delos Living, along with its partner company, Intellipure, sold 157,000 air purifiers to the city of New York, despite the fact that the units did not offer sufficient protection.
The WYNC/Gothamist report goes on to say that if the city had spent their budget on the three times more powerful Austin Air HealthMates, they could have purchased 68,000 HealthMates, enough to cover every classroom in New York, and still have 10,000 units spare!
CDC and the EPA promotes the use of HEPA
Advice from the CDC and the EPA is clear, in order to minimize the spread of Covid-19 in indoor spaces, the use of portable HEPA air purifiers is recommended. This guidance is also followed by the US Department of Education, to reduce risks in schools, colleges and universities.
“HEPA filters can reduce exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19, particularly in combination with universal and correct mask wearing”
HEPA is the safest and most effective solution in the fight against Covid-19
There is no doubt, over the past 18 months, schools have had to overcome huge challenges, often with little or no guidance. Afterall, this is the first time any of us have faced a global pandemic. But as we head into a second Covid winter, the advice is clear, always choose HEPA.
High efficiency Medical Grade HEPA filters used in combination with carbon, are the only proven technology that offers a safe and effective solution in the fight against Covid-19.
