COVID-19 is spread through airborne particles and droplets that carry the virus. When an infected person is in a room or space, these particles and droplets spread through the air and can build up over time. This means we want to clean and dilute the air in the spaces we’re in to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The Delta variant can spread twice as quickly as the original strain of the virus that causes COVID-19. Infected individuals carry around much more virus than the original strain. This means a person with the virus is more likely to transmit the virus to others in a shorter time. Therefore, we need to continually reduce the number of viral particles in indoor air through increased ventilation and efficient filtration.
Yes, we can help you with technical assistance to improve the ventilation and indoor air quality of your business, and to see if you may qualify for receipt of a HEPA air filtration unit.

What if I didn’t get a Vax Card, or if I lost or damaged it?
If you never received a Vaccination Card, or if you lost or damaged it, you can still get official proof of your vaccination. Proof of vaccination may still be obtained through your health care provider, from the location where you received your vaccine, or by setting up an account at www.MyIRMobile.com, a partner of the Washington State Department of Health.
Learn more about accessing your vaccine records through MyIR. If you need help getting your records, don’t have access to the internet, or if you need language assistance, call 1–800–525–0127, then press #.
