WFIS attended the regional health department webinar hosted by OESD114 and found these tidbits on safe air quality useful for all schools.

  • Everyone under 18 is considered in the “sensitive groups” as their lung capacity is lower and still developing.
  • Often, the air in schools is better than what the students have at home in some communities.
  • You need to KNOW if the indoor air is safer than the outdoor air.

All local health departments can request portable indoor air filters to lend to a school, as all have funding through DOH. Sometimes, a particular room needs to be cleaner for kids with asthma.
