Our manuscript on SARS-CoV-2 infection control and management in skilled nursing facilities has recently been accepted in the American Journal of Infection Control. This work was in collaboration with Shelly Miller from CU Boulder, Nicholas Clements from Mayo Clinic, and Cedric Steiner from Eastern University, Pennsylvania. Titled: "Implementing a Negative Pressure Isolation Space within a Skilled Nursing Facility to Control SARS-CoV-2 Transmission", pre-print of the manuscript can be accessed from medRxiv (see Research Publications page). Nursing and long-term facilities have been most severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Isolation spaces can be an effective strategy to manage infection control and meet surge capacity during a pandemic. In this study we implemented a negative pressure isolation space at a nursing facility in Pennsylvania, guided by computational flow physics models and on-site pressure measurements. The study was highly successful resulting in smooth operation, zero transmission, and zero fatalities in the facility during the course of the study. FLOWLab PI Debanjan Mukherjee, and graduate student Joseph Wilson participated in this study and co-authored the manuscript. Our group continues to expand this investigation on respiratory infection control and management in indoor facilities. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have, or any interest in this topic in general. Meanwhile, check out our paper on medRxiv!
