Elevator Airflow Study Findings
In January 2020, the company issued findings from its elevator air flow study. The study, led by a Purdue University professor and indoor air quality expert, investigated risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus in elevators.
Overall, the findings are encouraging. They conclude that air circulation within the elevator is key and place elevator rides on the lower end of the exposure risk activities scale.
