Air conditioning and ventilation


The risk of air conditioning spreading coronavirus in the workplace is extremely low.

You can continue using most types of air conditioning system as normal.


However, if you use a centralised ventilation system that removes and circulates air to different rooms, it is recommended that you turn off recirculation and use a fresh air supply.
