Ventilation Measures

​​​​​​​Standardized Vent​ilation​​ Measures Report 

​The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) has implemented multiple protective strategies to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to support healthier and safe learning environments for staff and students. Improved ventilation measures is a key element in the board’s protective strategies. LKDSB is optimizing air quality in schools through improved ventilation and filtration via HEPA filtration devices.

School Board​​ Ventila​​​tion Profile​ 

School boards are optimizing air quality in schools through improved ventilation and filtration. Implemented measures are dependent on the type of ventilation and feasibility within the context of school facilities and related building systems. This is a key element in the multiple protective strategies being employed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and support healthier and safe learning environments for students and staff.

MEASURES TO HELP REDUCE TRANSMISSION RISK IN INDOOR SETTINGS

  • Ventilation: Increasing the flow of outdoor/fresh air for diluting the concentration of any infectious particles.
  • ​Filtration: Involves the use of different types of fibrous media designed to remove particles from the airstream.
SCHOOL BOARD VENTILATION STRATEGY
  • ​All ventilation systems at LKDSB schools have been assessed to prioritize improvements.
  • Ventilation systems have been modified to increase the amount of incoming fresh air and have been programmed to operate longer hours to ensure occupied spaces have full air exchanges before, during and after class time.
  • Stand-alone HEPA filtration units are being positioned in all occupied kindergarten classrooms and all other occupied classrooms which do not have access to mechanical ventilation systems.
  • HEPA filter units will also be provided in libraries, gyms, staff rooms and offices where mechanical ventilation is not available.​
