The ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force has released anĀ Alternate Care Site HVAC Guidebook, responding to numerous communities setting up alternative care sites (ACS) to deal with spikes in COVID-19.

It was developed following a special request to convene a collaborative group from the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force and the US Army Corps of Engineers (ACE), to provide engineering recommendations, solutions, and guidance for HVAC systems for ACS.

The guide mostly applies to host sites with large open spaces such as convention centres and smaller facilities with open areas like school gymnasiums. Recommendations include guidance for designing air flow, filtration, space conditions and methodology.
