Fitwel Viral Response Module
Fitwel's Viral Response Module launched as a third-party certification of practices and policies built upon the latest public health research on mitigating the spread of contagious diseases. The module emphasizes key building optimization strategies designed to reduce disease transmission and create healthy environments for occupants across commercial and residential portfolios or individual assets. The baseline requirements cover the indoor environment, building occupant trust, behavioral change, and specific chemicals in cleaning products. While initially originated to control the spread of COVID-19, the module will continue to evolve with further research on infectious respiratory diseases.
