Fresh Air Schools

Inspired by the work of Dr Eilir Hughes and Dr Huw Waters of Fresh Air NHS, Fresh Air Schools was founded in January 2021 to promote the importance of airborne transmission of Covid-19 within classrooms, and strategies to mitigate this risk using ventilation, masks with good fit and filtration, and portable air cleaners.

Fresh Air Schools has since developed a multi-disciplinary network of contacts, including front line doctors, aerosol scientists, ventilation engineers and Health and Safety Union Representatives.. This support has enabled us to provide parents and school leadership teams with accurate scientific information on the prevention of airborne transmission in school classrooms.

This body of knowledge is now being utilised to support the wider public through the Fresh Air Foundation.
