This is the fourth in a series of webinars, “Less Talk, More Action: Tactical Topics to Return to Campus,” jointly sponsored by SCUP’s North Atlantic Region, BSA, and their BSA/SCUP College + University Roundtable focused on the impact of COVID-19 on campuses.
As we reopen campuses, offices, and stores, to whom do we listen for assurance that the physical environments are indeed reasonably safe? There is guidance, but there are no guarantees. However, it is possible to use objective measures—health performance indicators—to gain and publish a level of confidence in the preparation of spaces and the activities of staff, students, and faculty. In this webinar, Harvard’s Joseph Allen and John Macomber discussed their new book, Healthy Buildings: How Indoor Spaces Drive Performance and Productivity, and in particular, what are best practices today as organizations think about prudent return. This session was moderated by Donna Denio, Founder and Co-Chair of the BSA/SCUP College + University Roundtable.
