Performing Arts Aerosol Study
Lead researchers: Dr. Shelly Miller (University of Colorado Boulder), Dr. Jelena Srebric (University of Maryland)
Exploratory measurements on some band instruments and singing completed.
Tests conducted in controlled ‘clean room’.
Goal was to identify flow and aerosol release pathways.
Particle size and concentration measured near to the aerosol release.
Next phase is to improve aerosol capture and estimate emission rates.
Goal was to identify flow pathways, which would carry emitted particles.

Er is sprake van ‘preliminary results’:
“These preliminary results are from our 1st week of exploratory testing. They will be further defined as the study continues. We are providing these preliminary results to assist in the safe return to classrooms. (Normally we do not release data until they have been quality assessed and peer reviewed).”
