Why is this important?
Regular equipment servicing and maintenance, as well as regular facility checks helps to support a healthy environment for all children and staff. Ventilation, alongside other public health measures, has an important role in reducing the transmission of infectious diseases including COVID-19.
What actions can we take?
- Ensure that all building operations, including the Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning (HVAC) system (if applicable), are serviced and maintained on a regular basis to ensure optimal indoor air quality.
- Clean or change HVAC filters regularly as per manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Ensure that all plumbing and water/stormwater drains are checked on a regular basis to reduce risks of mould and impacts of flooding.
