ASHRAE COVID Guidance Referenced in Proposed New Mexico Bill

A proposed bill in the New Mexico House, introduced on February 2, includes a reference to ASHRAE’s COVID-19 guidance. HB 232, the Public School Ventilation Improvement Act, would provide grants to school districts to improve mechanical ventilation systems in public schools for the health and safety of students and school personnel during the Coronavirus pandemic. It would require a building ventilation assessment to verify whether the existing mechanical ventilation system follows ASHRAE’s recommendations for ventilation needs.
