Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Institute for Pandemics (IfP) in collaboration with the Canadian Public Health Association presents a webinar for public health professionals to hear the latest research on indoor air transmission of infectious diseases and strategies to reduce exposure.

This webinar is a preview to the symposium, “Something in the air: Towards a new understanding of aerosols and respiratory disease transmission”, that will be presented at Public Health 2024 in Halifax this April.

Dr. Raymond Tellier will introduce the concept and definition of respiratory bioaerosols, and review some of the abundant scientific evidence supporting an important role for aerosol transmission of influenza A virus and SARs-CoV-2 virus, 2 agents with a proven pandemic capacity.

Dr. Sarah Haines will present her recent work on portable air cleaners to detect SARs-CoV-2 as well as identifying ventilation and other strategies that may be beneficial in reducing viral exposure.
