TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — As vaccination rates continue to go up and indoor events resume, a new online tool can help calculate the risk of coronavirus.
This app, developed by Kasim Khan in collaboration with Martin Z. Bazant and John W. M. Bush, uses a theoretical model to calculate safe exposure times and occupancy levels for indoor spaces.
You can add in factors like the amount of people, mask-wearing, how long you stay and more to the calculation.
By adjusting room specifications, ventilation and filtration rates, face-mask usage, respiratory activities, and risk tolerance (in the other tabs), you can see how to mitigate indoor COVID-19 transmission in different indoor spaces.
