This is not a political blog, but every so often, my focus on wellness design intersects with political events and trends. This is one of those times. Last week, the White House announced a new indoor air quality initiative, formally acknowledging the link between better ventilation and reducing the spread of Covid.
I wrote about this almost two years ago, as you may recall, when the CDC posted and deleted the guidance about the virus being aerosolized. That is established scientific fact now and it has significant consequences for how our buildings are ventilated — and about how safe and healthy we are inside them.
In this latest piece, I talk about the initiative and its implications for the buildings where Americans live. Take a look and let me know your thoughts.

making Covid spread worse among vulnerable communities

Next on Clubhouse
Ordinarily, my next WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS event would be happening on April 6th, the first week of the month. Since I’ll be at Coverings then, ogling all of the latest tile trends and releases, there won’t be a conversation that day.
The next one will take place on the regularly-scheduled third Wednesday of the month. I’ll be talking Wellness Design and Appliances with a panel of experts on April 20th, 4 pm EST, 1 pm PST and all the related time zones. I hope you’ll join us!
