ASHRAE has developed proactive guidance to help address COVID-19 concerns with respect to the operation and maintenance of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems.

The ASHRAE COVID-19 Preparedness Resources webpage provides information on a variety of topics, including ventilation for indoor air quality, and its position document on Airborne Infectious Diseases, which states its latest practical standards and guidelines. Links to guidances and statements from other organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, are also included.
